Is there a Discernible “Jesus Way” of Disciple-Making?

Thursday is for Disciple-Making

Thoughts on the “Jesus Way” revealed in Mark chapter 1:

  • The Jesus Way is saturated with prayer (v. 12)
  • The Jesus Way is a bold proclamation of the gospel that includes a call to repentance and the announcement of the Kingdom of God having come (v. 15)
  • The Jesus Way is intentional about training men to be fishers of men (v. 17)
  • The Jesus Way utilized the religious gathering places already established in the culture (v. 21)
    • [and one that especially caught my attention …]
  • The Jesus Way expressed great pity for the suffering of others through disease (v.41)

Question: How would any of these change, over-turn, modify or enhance your own disciple-making process, or the disciple-making process of your church plant?

  1. re: your last point

    Peter summarized the disciple-making of Jesus in Acts 10:38 as “God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with power. He went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil, for God was with him.”

    I spoke to the men in the prison last night using a updated version of this verse, to wit: “God anointed (your name, i.e. John of Chester) with the Holy Spirit and with power. He is going about doing good and healing all who are oppressed by the devil, for God is with him.” This is their directive for life as a disciple of Jesus Christ.
