Do not be afraid, little flock, for
your Father has been pleased to
give you the Kingdom.
Luke 12:32
Friday, September 26, 14
Trust me, my Father wants you to enter
His Kingdom…now not later.
The Kingdom of God is more than my
retirement home (Heaven) Jesus bought
(the Cross) because I can't afford it. (Sin)
Friday, September 26, 14

“What is the relationship between
the King and His subjects?”
Friday, September 26, 14
“Follow Me”
means
Kingdom Followship
We are not leading.
We have not arrived.
We are not alone.
Friday, September 26, 14
The Master
and
His apprentice
Friday, September 26, 14
“Follow me.”
“A Disciple, or Apprentice…
is simply someone who has
decided to be with another
person, in order to become
capable of doing what that
person does or to become
what that person is.”
Dallas Willard, The Divine Conspiracy, p. 282
Friday, September 26, 14
Jesus college
A “Good” School
“The Lord is my Shepherd; I lack nothing…”
Psalm 23:1
SimplyFollowJesus.com
Jesus' College is the only one in which God's truth can be really learned;
other schools may teach us what is to be believed, but Christ's alone can
show us how to believe it. Let us sit at the feet of Jesus, and by earnest
prayer call in his blessed aid that our dull wits may grow brighter, and
our feeble understandings may receive heavenly things.
CH Spurgeon, Morning & Evening - Luke 24:27
Friday, September 26, 14
“Come to me, take my yoke,
and learn from me.” Matt. 11:28-29
“Deny yourself, pick up
your cross and follow me.”
Luke 9:23
“I am the Vine, you are
the branch. Stay in me”John 15:5
Three Kingdom Woods
Friday, September 26, 14
Now if we are children,
then we are heirs—heirs
of God and co-heirs
with Christ, if indeed we
share in his sufferings in
order that we may also
share in his glory.
Romans 8:17
Friday, September 26, 14
Our central message - our gospel - must be one that has
a natural tendency to produce disciples of Jesus, not just
avid consumers of religious goods and services.
Disciples are self-starters in Kingdom living on the road
with Jesus day in and day out. The gospel of life now in
the present Kingdom of the Heavens (Matthew 4:17)
will produce disciples. And then we organize our
“meetings”...in a way that intelligently develops
disciples and fosters their progressive transformation
into Christlikeness from the inside.
Dallas Willard, Foreword
Renovation of the Church by Kent Carlson & Mike Lueken
Friday, September 26, 14
“C ome to me, all
y o u w h o a r e w e a r y
and burdened, and
I w i l l g i v e y o u
r est. Take m y y o ke
upon you and
l ear n from me, for
I a m g e n t l e a n d
humble in heart,
and you will find
r e s t f o r y o u r
so uls. F o r m y y o ke
i s easy and my
burden is light.”
Mat t h ew 11:28-30 SimplyFollowJesus.com
Friday, September 26, 14
“It is not like teaching a horse to jump better but like
turning a horse into a winged creature. For a while,
mere lumps on the shoulders.” CS Lewis, Mere Christianity

Kingdom Travel on
“El Camino Real”
{The High Road}
Friday, September 26, 14
5:20, “For I tell you that unless
your righteousness** surpasses
that of the Pharisees and the
teachers of the law…”
~ ~ ~
**Righteousness (def.)
Equity of Character;
Integrity; Virtue;
Purity of life; Rightness;
Correct thinking, feeling, & acting .
Repent: Think about your thinking
Kingdom Travel on
“The King’s Highway”
The character of legalism** is you always have to be thinking and you
can’t think fast enough to stay up with it. Dallas Willard
