Audio: Discipleship & The Seeker Friendly Church

Now great crowds accompanied him, and he turned and said to them, “If anyone comes to me and does not hate his own father and mother and wife and children and brothers and sisters, yes, and even his own life, he cannot be my disciple. Whoever does not bear his own cross and come after me cannot be my disciple… So therefore, any one of you who does not renounce all that he has cannot be my disciple. Luke 14:25-27 ESV, Luke 14:33 ESV

In the four Gospels our Lord Jesus Christ spoke often about the terms of discipleship.

When we honestly examine His teaching on this very important subject we will probably arrive at the same conclusion as many of His disciples came to: “This is a hard saying; who can listen to it?” John 6:60 ESV. In fact, His teaching was so difficult that “many of his disciples turned back and no longer walked with Him.” John 6:66 ESV.

What about us? After we have evaluated His teachings will we continue with Him or will we be like the “many” who “turned back and no longer walked with him”?

Recorded: Sunday September 30, 2012 at the North York Gospel Chapel, York, PA
