“In His Steps” was a sermon series designed around the idea of discipleship. We want to be following so close in Jesus’ footsteps that we are covered in the dust of His path. We chose 10 things that Christ did that we believe we need to understand and emulate in order to become more like Him. Hopefully you have been learning through this process and begun to implement the ideas in your life and turned them into action.
Often people will move forward in the process from an unbeliever to believer to disciple and then stop just short of the final step. We need to be creating disciples. If the last people chasing after God stop at the point where they are not affecting others around them to move in the same direction what happens? There is less and less holiness and Christ in our world. We need to infuse the Sword of the Spirit into our lives so that our tongues might be sharpened like the “Sword.” When we talk we should talk through the inspiration of the Holy Spirit. If we spoke as if the Holy Spirit was inspiring us, our rhetoric would be radical to those around us. We would be doing things and saying things to people that would move them to action as well. Once we get people moved towards Christ we can begin to help mentor them for Christ. They can begin to connect with God through learning who He is and then letting their hearts connect to His spirit. If we all did this there would be exponential growth for the Kingdom and we would be so much better at showing the world an accurate reflection of whom God is.
If you haven’t started the reading plan that you set for yourself on day 43 then get to it. There is no better time to jump into the word than now. Lets fill ourselves with His word and Spirit! Lets start bringing the Kingdom to His people and change the world radically through the love of Christ revealed through us, Christ’s disciples!
