            "Growing in the Going" (Luke 10:1-12)

  • Some people believe that the concept of Christian mission originated with the church; when in actuality the concept originated in t­he heart of the Father! (Genesis 3:15; 12:1-4; John 3:16-17; Exodus 3:10; Galatians 4:4-6)
  • Our God is a ‘sending’ God and is ‘missional’ in every sense!
    • The Father sent the Son. (Genesis 3:15; John 1:14; 3:16-17; Luke 19:10)
    • The Son sent the disciples out into the world. (Luke 9:1-6; 10:1-12; John 20:21)
    • The Father and the Son sent the Holy Spirit. (Acts 1:8; John 16:7-8)
    • The disciples sent out other disciples. (Acts 13:2-3)      
    • We’re supposed to send out others! (Matthew 28:18-20)
  • Merely consuming spiritual concepts can inoculate us to the on-ground practices of making disciples! (1 Corinthians 8:1; Hebrews 5:11-14; Acts 10:14-15; Galatians 3:1-3)
  • Discipleship is a move toward accountability and vulnerability in learning to practice the way of Jesus on mission! (Luke 9:1-6; 10:1-12; Acts 10:34-35)
  • Discipleship involves heart, mind, and body learning; not just the transfer of information and beliefs! (1 Corinthians 11:1; 1 Thessalonians 5:23)
  • The prerequisite to living on mission is fully understanding the mission!             (Luke 9:1-6, 28; 10:1-12; Matthew 28:18-20; Acts 1:8)
  • Understanding that it’s the heart of Jesus is to equip each disciple to ‘DOministry! (Luke 9:1-6, 28; 10:1-12; Matthew 4:19; John 13:17; Acts 1:8; Hebrews 5:12-14)
  • Jesus taught them how to ‘live on mission’ by sending them out to experience the mission first hand! (Luke 9:1-6; 10:1-12)
    • Trust in Him for provision along the way! (Matthew 6:33; 7:11; Luke 10:7)
    • Relational evangelism! (Matthew 13:28-30; Proverbs 27:17)
    • Open identification with Christ! (Mark 8:29, 38; Acts 2:14-28)
    • Pick up your cross and follow me! – (Matthew 16:24-26; Luke 9:23)
    • Abide in Me and My Words abide in you! (John 15:1-11, 16)
    • Obedience to His Word! (John 14:12; 1 John 5:1-5; James 2:18)
    • Shrewd/Wise for the Kingdom! (Luke 16:8-9; Matthew 10:16; 18:18-20)
  • “You will know/understand as much of God, and ONLY as much of God as you are willing to put into practice!” (Erik Liddell)
  • What are you attempting today in the area of discipleship that necessitates God showing up for its success? What disciplines are you implementing to ensure that you’re offering up the authentic fruit of discipleship?
