There’s been lots of discussion across a number of blogs about “Discipling”, or “Making Disciples”.
Some have had really bad experiences in this vein, and have developed a distaste for the term, based on its intrusiveness and the innate patronizing air of persons who go up to someone else with an attitude of…
“You are broken and out of order, and I am here to fix you!”
I want to publish this… well… this “sermon”.
I think it’s the first time I’m trying to do this. I’m not sure I can make a “Player” work in this html bloggy format. The message is about half an hour long. But this is an absolutely extraordinary message that I think will change the way each and every hearer looks at “making disciples” for the rest of our lives. I know it did so for me.
I can attest to the absolute honesty of the speaker. Not only from knowing his honesty and integrity, but from having benefited from this process personally.
Here is the blog description of this message from its own internet source on http://www.PodBean.com:
Our Listening to Jesus sermon series leads us to very familiar ground in Matthew 28:18-20. While often understood as a primarily missions scripture, Pastor Adams delves deep into the meaning of the words and their impact for believers of all stripes. The call is sounded for disciple making as you go through life, baptizing others in the Father’s love, the Son’s forgiveness, and the Spirit’s presence in ordinary, everyday ways. This sermon is a part of our Listening to Jesus sermon series and was preached on Sunday, March 4 by Pastor Bob Adams. This podcast is a ministry of First Baptist Church of Bogalusa, La. Thank you for listening!

Have you ever heard discipling presented this way?
Does this seem more or less like Jesus made disciples, when compared to any other process you have heard before?
Do you feel this would be simpler, or more complicated than other things you’ve heard before?
Do you feel this would be easier, or harder than other things you’ve heard before?
Do you feel this is the right way to make disciples?
