ARE WE PREPARED TO DISCIPLISHIP
Lebogang Rasesigo    [email]    ( Botswana ) 2016-11-23     Views : 51     Touched : 13
In sometimes if not most case, we can describe our Christian experience as dull, unfulfilled and even boring at times due to challenges and exciting we are coming across. The Requirements of Discipleship preaching of Jesus can deliberately thin out our faith if we are not ready. Have we seriously examined the statements Jesus made concerning what it means to be a disciple? Jesus laid out the tests and requirements of discipleship which we can count the cost before we engage ourselves so that our Yes will stand firm.
Look at this first sermon;
There, Jesus asked someone to follow Him, but the man responds with this excuse: "Lord, let me first go and bury my father." (Luke 9:59)
Jesus answered: "Let the dead bury their own dead, but you go and preach the kingdom of God." (Luke 9:60)
Jesus makes it clear that when it comes to personal discipleship, He is more interested in quality than quantity. In this discipleship life, you either have harmony with people and friction with God, or harmony with God and friction with people. You cannot have them both ways. Think of Matthew 10:34-42
Jesus begins with some very strong words: "If anyone comes to Me and does not hate his father and mother, wife and children, brothers and sisters, yes, and his own life also, he cannot be My disciple" (Luke 14:26). He uses this sermon to show that our love for God must take pre-eminence over all others.
What about this sermon of Abraham;
God gave him a son, Isaac, in his old age. The boy was precious to Abraham's life, the bliss of his heart. This young man was a bodily representation of everything blessed to Abraham's heart: the covenants God had made and the corporeal bond to the coming Messiah.
In spiritually, God told Abraham, “Take your son, your only son Isaac, whom you love, and go to the land of Moriah, and offer him there as a burnt offering on one of the mountains of which I shall tell you.” (Genesis 22:2)

With faith Abraham have never hesitated even when his son asked “Behold, the fire and the wood, but where is the lamb for a burnt offering?” With reconciliation he said “God will provide for himself the lamb for a burnt offering, my son.” Abraham never questioned God and as a result he passed the test. After this test in Abraham's life, there was nothing in his life that was not committed to the Lord. What about our commitment to Him. Can we have faith like Abraham or when there is challenges and exciting we put excuses like the first man? God is still looking for men and women who will shake their world, men and women who will be His disciples. It is belongs to us to work for our “Yes” rather than saying “Yes” and produce results of “No”. may our Mighty God bless us in the name of Jesus.

To possess or inherit Faith in the righteousness of God, we need to give up our human thoughts and turn away from them. Only those who believe in the Gospel of Water and the Spirit and believe the word of God can conceive Jesus in the heart. We should all know that God favour those who are poor in heart, who do not have self-righteousness, who treasure the Gospel of water and the spirit, who cherish God’s love rather than human love. To receive this favour, we should be committed to God’s word, depend on God’s righteousness and trusted His word as a whole. All of us we have opportunity to receive the favour by knowing our true ugliness and greatness of God, and when we know the fact that God saved us from sin by the Gospel of Water and Spirit. This faith of believing in the gospel of the water and the Spirit where God’s justice and mercy is manifested is the only way through which God the Father and His Son Jesus Christ had delivered the entire human race from all its sins.

Thanks so much Rev Jong again for your books; “What is the Spiritual Faith and Be a Gospel who Saves the Human Race from Destruction”, they built the power and strength to break through the difficulties I come across. All in all, they helped me to labor for the food that does not perish. These books speak the Truth that enables all its readers to be saved from their judgement in an age and time when the end of the world is upon us. It is definitely true that salvation is a free gift received upon by faith. God bless!
