Istrouma Baptist Church Podcast

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

Being Clear Corporatey


  • 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.


  • 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)


  • 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.


  • 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?

“Here’s an amazing thought: you can walk with God.  He desires to walk with you through life’s joys and challenges.  The account of Enoch’s life will clue us in on how such a walk can be achieved.”

Genesis 5:21-24

Key verse:  “When Enoch had lived 65 years, he became the father of Methuselah. 22 And after he became the father of Methuselah, Enoch walked with God 300 years and had other sons and daughters. 23 Altogether, Enoch lived 365 years. 24 Enoch walked with God; then he was no more, because God took him away.”
