A Word from the Lord Messages with Archbishop Foley Beach

Go and Make Disciples, Not Decisions

December 17, 2017

Sunday Sermon Note: You can listen to Archbishop Beach’s Current Sunday Sermon From the Gospel of Matthew (1:18-25): “Advent, Part 4: Prelude to Jesus’ Birth”, at our Website: www.AWordFromTheLord.org/listen/.

 

Message Summary: Message Summary: God said go and make disciples not decisions. In Jesus’ last instructions to His Apostles, and to us, before His Ascension to Heaven from Earth is in Mathew 28:16-20, which is Jesus’ Great Commission: “And Jesus came and said to them, ‘All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.’”. A disciple is a student, a follower, a learner. Making a disciple is not about classes, making a disciple it about investing yourself in the life of another person – discipling is having a relationship with another person so that they see the life of Christ in you. Have you been discipled, or have you made a disciple? Not being “discipled” is the “great omission”.

 

Today’s Affirmation: Today, I affirm that because of what God has done for me in His Son, Jesus, I AM FORGIVEN. If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness. (1 John 1:9).

Scripture Reference (ESV)): Mathew 28:16-20; Mathew 9:36-38; Mathew 10:16-33.

About A Word from the Lord Messages

The vision of A Word from the Lord is to share Biblical teaching using the instruments of radio, print, computer, the Internet, and satellite technology so that people might hear and apply the WORD of GOD and discover the Gospel of Jesus the Messiah.

In today’s world of confusing and conflicting messages from the Church, a major goal of A Word from the Lord can be summarized from Nehemiah when: They read from the Book of the Law of God, making it clear and giving meaning so that the people could understand what was being read (Nehemiah 8:8,NIV). With all the clutter in today's media venues, A Word from the Lord, seeks to proclaim in simple terms the ancient Faith of the Scriptures. As the Apostle Paul has written for us: So faith comes from hearing, and hearing through the word of Christ (Romans 10:17, ESV).
