Are you a Disciple?

Yesterday, we explored the concept of being a disciple of Jesus. What does that look like? What does that mean?  Last night, my dad came on stage with me to discuss the sermon with our Sunday night service.  He told us about a list he came up with to ‘check himself’.  These 6 questions, are a way to take a spiritual inventory.  I thought I would pass them along to you.  Wow, they are very revealing to your intent and motives.  They are inspired by Matthew 7.

Are you doing the will of the Father?  Here is a check list to find out:

  1. Do you eagerly anticipate reading the Word and connecting in prayer with God?
  2. What do you daydream and worry about?
  3. Do you know more about sports (or other social interest) than you do about scripture?
  4. What are your goals and ambitions?
  5. Do you look to your job for security and self worth?
  6. Do you dress and act to attract attention to yourself, or to God?

  1. Great scriptual checkpoint; in accordance with 2 Corinthians 13:5 (ESV)
    5 Examine yourselves, to see whether you are in the faith. Test yourselves. Or do you not realize this about yourselves, that Jesus Christ is in you? —unless indeed you fail to meet the test! Thank you Bro. Rob

    I also see being a disciple a lot like being an intern. With experience as an intern and now in supervision this is what’s thought. Am I maleable? Am I teachable? Interns ask a lot of questions to make sure they’re doing things correctly. They’re eager to learn. They stay on your heels and ask if there’s anything else they can do. They take on some of your traits but also learn what works for them. Interns want to make sure they do what YOU need them to do. They provide assistance in the work that needs to be done. As they learn you and the position, they become more comfortable in their own gifts and abilities to do the job. They learn what needs to be done and do it, but not usually without makind sure it’s in alignment with the provided expectations. Being a disciple is much the same with Christ as our supervisor.
