When was the last time you had “on the job training” or started a new job and had to sit through hours of orientation? When we start a new job or need to go through on the job training, we typically have someone walking us through new corporate policies, new programs or a new way to sell the products. This is a form of Discipleship. We are all in need of on the job training at times and we are all in need of someone walking us through a way of life that points us to Jesus.
This week we continue to look at the life of Jesus and how Luke is explaining to Theophilus the way of Jesus. Remember, Theophilus has been discipled and walked through this information at one point and Luke is writing down all that he has been taught. See Luke 1:1-4 for more information on this discipleship model. Last week we covered the first 6 Key Discipleship Truths from Luke and this week we will add 2 more.
As a reminder, the first 6 Key Discipleship Truths Are:
1.Discipleship Takes More Than One Of Us
2.Discipleship Points To Jesus Alone
3.Discipleship Carries No Excuses
4.Discipleship Urgency Is Based In Faith
5.Discipleship Is In Faith Viewed In Obedience
6.Discipleship Response Is Awe / Worship
This week we added:
7. Discipleship Is An Answered Call
8. Discipleship Is A New Wine Skin
When Jesus called Levi to come and follow him Levi had a decision to make.
Discussion Questions For Week 9:
I pray that as you have these discussions you are continuing to learn how you can explain the life of Jesus. How could you explain the life of Jesus by the way that he responds to Levi and to these Pharisees?
