We glorify God by making disciples of all nations.  Hebrews 10:19-25; Matthew 28:16-20

Being Clear Corporatey

WE

  • Everyone of us is indispensable.  We are all important in the body of Christ, the church. (1 Cor. 12:12-27)
  • God wants all of us to move from dabblers to devoted disciples.

GLORIFY GOD

  • God is God-centered. (ps. 29:2, 46:10, 147:1; Is. 43:7; Rom. 11:36; 1Jn. 2:12)
  • God glorifies Himself by saving siners! So we worship, not out of duty but delight.
  • Worship consists of His revelation and our respones.
  • He reveals Himself through His word, which centers around the gospel.
  • We glorify God with a true heart (Heb. 10:22)
  • We glorify God together. (Ps. 95)

BY MAKING DISCIPLES

  • Jesus said, "Follow." (Mt. 4:19).  Following is different from watching.
  • A disciple is one who follows Jesus and whose life looks progressively more like His.
  • Biblical disciple-making brings biblical community and commission together.

OF ALL NATIONS

  • Praying, Giving, Going

Being Clear Individually (as part of the whole)

Six questions to ask yourself:

1.  How will I fill my mind with truth?

2.  How will I fuel my affections for God?

3.  How will I engage community in the church?

4.  How will I share Gods's love as a witness in the world?

5.  How will I spread God's glory among all nations?

6.  How will I make gisciple makers among a few people?
