Becoming A Fully-Devoted Follower Of Christ
Topic: Discipleship Passage: John 21:15–21:25
In the final verses of John’s gospel, we see FOUR CHARACTERISTICS of a fully-devoted follower of Christ. The bottom line is if you are totally convinced that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, you will be totally committed to follow and obey Him the rest of your life.
1. YOU TRULY AND SINCERELY LOVE CHRIST (vv. 15-17)
2. YOU FAITHFULLY AND DILIGENTLY SERVE CHRIST (vv. 15-17)
3. YOU WILLINGLY AND SACRIFICIALLY SUFFER FOR CHRIST (vv. 18-19a)
4. YOU HUMBLY AND OBEDIENTLY FOLLOW CHRIST (vv. 19b-23)
Thank God for not offering you a superficial makeover to satisfy your desire for self-improvement but for calling you to submit to a complete takeover of your life for His glory. Ask Him to grant you grace to abandon everything for the sake of His call on your life.
