Posted by Rick on February 4, 2008

Here are some “sound bites” from Sunday morning’s sermon, “Are you a Convert or a Disciple?” based on Matthew 7: 24-27.

  • A convert is one who has been persuaded from one belief or view to another.
  • A disciple is one who accepts and assists in spreading the doctrines of another.
  • A convert could be a true believer or one in “name” only.
  • A disciple is someone who is following Jesus and obeying His commandments.
  • The Great Commission did not say, “Go and make converts…”; it said, “Go and make disciples…”
  • Jesus said, “If anyone wishes to come after Me, he must deny himself, take up his cross daily and follow Me.”
  • Jesus said, “If you love Me, you will keep My commandments.”
  • Jesus said, “Abide in Me, and I in you.  As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself unless it abides in the vine, so neither can you unless you abide in Me.”
