 Christ’s Disciples Growing Spiritually


During Jesus’ ministry, it seems he had a close relationship with a small group of his disciples, brothers Andrew and Peter and James and John. Some have referred to this as his inner circle. While Jesus trained and mentored all his disciples, these four were often involved in more intimate situations like the transfiguration and Jesus passionate moments in the garden before his arrest.

 

It is interesting to note that this special relationship was marked by two passages of scripture that have turned the world upside down. I refer to them as bookends ... one at the beginning of the
relationship and one at the end.

 

At the front end is a statement in Matthew 4:19 “Follow Me, and I will make you fishers of men.” At the back end is another, “Go into the world and make disciples, and I will be with you
always!.


The front book-end is a statement of purpose for the Christian and the back book-end is an affirmation of that purpose. Both summarize our mission as followers of Christ.


Matt:4:18 - 19: And Jesus, walking by the Sea of Galilee, saw two brothers, Simon called Peter, and Andrew his brother, casting a net into the sea; for they were fishermen. Then He said to them, “Follow Me, and I will make you fishers of men.”


Do you see three key attributes here?

1. FOLLOW ME: all-in commitment to follow Jesus as leader of our lives.

2. I WILL MAKE YOU: a process of transformation into somethingdifferent than we were (after we are invited!).

3. FISHERS OF MEN: we are commissioned to become disciple- making disciples.


Matt 28:19 - 20: Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 teaching them to observe all
things that I have commanded you; In this book-end we likewise see three attributes:

1. GO ... AND MAKE DISCIPLES – this picks up where 4:19 leaves off.

2. TEACH THEM – disciple-making disciple.

3. TO OBSERVE/ACT ON ALL THINGS – continuing repetitive process.


I challenge you to consider what it means to be a maturing disciple of Christ that makes disciples of Christ. Where is your opportunity to grow spiritually?
