Relational Rhythms of Grace: Discipleship
Sermon Discussion
Matthew 4:18-22
Pastor Chris Sandoval

-What is something that you have learned by watching or learning from another person? What was that process like?

Read the passage again:
"While walking by the Sea of Galilee, he saw two brothers, Simon (who is calledPeter) and Andrew his brother, casting a net into the sea, for they were fishermen. And he said to them, “Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men.” Immediately they left their nets and followed him. And going on from there he saw two other brothers,James the son of Zebedee and John his brother, in the boat with Zebedee their father,mending their nets, and he called them. Immediately they left the boat and their father and followed him."

-What is discipleship from this passage?
1. Discipleship has two components from this passage : you follow and you fish. What does it look like to follow Jesus? What does it look like to fish for men?

-Why do we avoid discipleship in our lives?

-How is discipleship a gracious ministry in our lives? In the lives of others?

-How can we learn to do discipleship from Jesus in this passage?

A couple of quotes from Pastor Chris:
1. "You cannot be a follower of Jesus and be distant from Him: you need to get close" Why? How do we do that?
2. "Jesus comes near, He interrupts, and He calls to follow" How might this give us a model for discipling others in our lives?

-Pray for one another!
