Word of Encouragement-Disciple

October 21st, 2021 No comments

JOHN SHIRK – This week, our words of Encouragement direct our attention to who we are as a new creation in Christ.

Today’s Word of Encouragement is “Disciple.”

In Matthew 12:49, Jesus pointed to His disciples, and said, “Here are my mother and my brothers. Whoever does the will of my Father in heaven is my brother and sister and mother.”

A disciple of Jesus simply follows Him. We are students of His Word, learning to live a Christ-centered life. His teachings guide us to do the will of His Father in heaven. Wherever He leads, we follow Him as a beloved member of God’s family.

Find encouragement in following Jesus as one of His disciples in the Year of Endurance.

Daily Challenge-Following Jesus as a Disciple

February 3rd, 2021 No comments

JOHN SHIRK – In the Year of Endurance, today’s Daily Challenge motivates us to take a step toward discipleship.

In the days of Jesus, a disciple was someone who would learn from their mentor and follow them wherever they went. Jesus called His disciples to follow Him and then prepared them for leadership.

Mark 1:16 and 17 records the appointment of two of Jesus’ disciples: As Jesus walked beside the Sea of Galilee, he saw Simon and his brother Andrew casting a net into the lake, for they were fishermen. Jesus said, “Come follow me, and I will send you out to fish for people.” At once they left their nets and followed him.

Just as Simon and Andrew spent time with Jesus and were trained for productive service, so we can have a voice for God today that leads others to faith in Christ. The starting place for that kind of platform is to accept the invitation of Jesus to follow Him.

Take the daily challenge to walk as a disciple of Jesus and learn from Him on the journey of faith.
