- Our discipleship in Jesus Christ is essential to others coming to know Jesus.
- There is nothing passive about being a disciple of Jesus.
- Discipleship isn’t about taking a class. The cost of following Jesus: Your life. The reward of following Jesus: True life.
Verses 34-38, Jesus says:
Deny yourself. Do we believe our issues are more important than others? Do we deny ourselves anything for the glory of God or do we bow to the god of self-centeredness?
Take up your cross. Jesus asks Are you willing to say you’re with Me? It’s in My death that you’ll find true life.
The above snippets come nowhere close to doing Jason Malone’s sermon justice but is there one particular snippet that resonates with you this Monday morning?

Good snippets, Cathy. One lesson that continues to ring in my ear is about serving others. When our focus is on being a blessing to someone else, we don't worry about ourselves as much. And honestly, when it comes right down to it, I've learned that I don't really need all that much.
So true, Susan. So true!
I wish I could've posted the entire manuscript from yesterday's service.
Thanks for sharing, friend.
Nothing Passive!!!! Amen sister. Love, Hester 😉
ps. just got the book, "Follow Me" – can't wait to dive in.
Let me know what you think of his book. I may have to dive in myself. 🙂
So timely for me. Easy to feel "holy" studying a lesson. Not so easy to live it. Good highlights, Cathy .
Not so easy at all, Marcia. Thanks for stopping by. 🙂
This reminded me of the ABCs of salvation:
A=Admit=Denying ourselves is like admitting that we're sinners in need of a Savior. If I don't deny myself, I'm saying I can to it on my own.
B=Believe=Taking up our crosses are like believing that Jesus' way is the only way; we know we must do as His does.
C=Confess=Following Him is like confessing Him to others, proclaiming that we are striving to be like Him.
I've never made that connection until now. Thanks!
I love this, Vonda! Thanks so much for sharing. 🙂
