Good evening! This post is for your personal study. It's the notes from this week's edition of September 2 Remember.
Title...Church That Matters
Text...Luke 9:23 Then he said to the crowd, "If any of you wants to be my follower, you must turn from your selfish ways, take up your cross daily, and follow me."
This is a 5 week systematic study, with a central focus on 'Church That Matters'. It's designed to encourage a deeper commitment to discipleship development and to motivate our membership to become active participants in ministry eccentricities and regularly sharing their faith stories.
1) Make the decision to follow Jesus
2) Learn to turn your back on yourself
3) Be committed to the cause
'A community of Jesus which seeks to hide itself has ceased to follow him. ' ~Dietrich Bonhoeffer
'Following Christ is not a casual or occasional practice but a continuous commitment and easy of life that applies at all times and in all places.'
~Dallas H. Oaks
