We are currently in a series that deals with What It Means to Be a Disciple of Jesus.

What does a follower of Jesus look like.? What do they do? How do they act? What motivates and drives them?

Last week we saw that disciples must be Students— and one of the best ways to live this out is to read the Bible. God’s Word (The Bible) is a living thing– and it will transform our minds as we experience it.

This week we will see that a disciple is also a Prayer (pray-er). Disciples of Jesus pray.

If you have been in church for any period of time, this is not a new idea. We know that we should pray. But we also struggle with this  idea.

Sunday we shall see two things that prevent an effective prayer life and a couple things that will encourage an effective prayer life.

To prepare, read Matthew 6:5-14 and Luke 18:1-8.

Try applying what we talked about last week… When you read these passages, ask yourself these questions:

1) What does it say?

2) What does it mean?

3) What does it mean to me?

Also, I want to encourage you to pray that God would open your heart and mind to these principles of discipleship. Pray that he would increase your desire to read his Word and pray!

Looking forward to Sunday!!

 

Grace and peace,

Doug
