**Disclaimer- This is a challenge for growth. Not to belittle anyone, or make anyone feel condemned.
-In today’s church culture, there are essentially two groups of people:
-Fans and Disciples.
Mat 4:19 (MKJV) And He said to them, Follow Me, and I will MAKE you fishers of men.
-Those that are cheering and those that are being MADE!!
Fans WATCH, Disciples FOLLOW….
Key thoughts about Fans:
1.) Fans like the experience but choose to go home…..
-They literally have no responsibility or accountability to the object or person they are cheering on.
-The connection is based more so on praise rather than purpose.
2.) Fans can be supportive but not submitted.
-Cheering him on, but not respecting his authority.
-Without submission there is no acceptance of responsibility.
-Adjustments aren’t important, they are just ideas.
Key thoughts about Disciples-
1.) Disciples submit to the MOLDING process.
-MAKE YOU or MOLD you
-Adjustments are ESSENTIAL
-Sacrifice is a way of LIFE….(Present your bodies a LIVING sacrifice)
2.) Adopt the vision
Your objective becomes MY objective, your views become MY views, your precepts and principles become MY principles, your desires become MY desires…etc
