"Glorifying God In the Truth": "Discipleship 101" (pt.2)


"Discipleship 101" (pt.2)

Matt.5:1-2) "When Jesus saw the crowds, He went up on the mountain; and after He sat down His disciples came to Him. He opened His mouth and began to teach them, saying:"

Last Saturday we began a new chapter in the life of Pleasant Hill Baptist church, as men. We began meeting to study God's Word, pray, and time for a light breakfast! I know in the past there has been other pastors who has set out in such an adventure. As a pastor meeting with our men and praying is a "giant" step I believe in the right direction for the Lord's church at Pleasant Hill. I believe this will strengthen the men of the church spiritually and thus, strengthen their homes and ultimately strengthen the church as a whole.
All through the New Testament you see and read of Jesus pouring Himself into other men. Lets face it, rarely did Jesus teach a "large" assembly of believers. He (Jesus) faithfully taught other men who were able to teach other men (2 Tim.2:2). Jesus sets forth the bar for all leaders especially pastors to follow in disciplining God's people. My desire for PHBC is to be a church which is built on the solid foundation of the Word of God and it must begin with our men.
Last week we had a total of 4 men and a pre-teen to show up for our time together. We stated our goal is to take the book of Romans and read one chapter a week and to meditate on it several times. We are going to write down our observations, our thoughts, and most importantly how this applies to us as men. We have a few more men who are planning on coming tomorrow. Lord's willing it will be a good way to begin our day in the Word of God with some of God's people. I am looking forward to our time together.Until the next time "look unto Christ the author and finisher of our faith!"
