4 stages of discipleship….idea; event; discipline; way of life
Pass along what you are taught to others
Jesus did what the Father shows him to do and tells him what to say. We are not the answer to everything.
Don’t be human doings, be human beings.
Tell people what Jesus said, not your opinion.
Go to God with empty hands - we need to empty our hands so He can fill them.
All ministry is local - where You Are (neighbors, co-workers, etc.)
Hand write notes to people.
