The Disciples Move to Center Stage 9:30 am

The Disciples Move to Center Stage 9:30 am

Passage: Matthew 9:35-11:1

Speaker: Dr. Steven Laufer

Series: Center Stage

Category: Sunday Sermons

Keywords: discipleship, disciples, christlikeness

For a lengthy period of time, Jesus simply had his disciples follow him and observe his work and his message. But at a certain point, it became time for those disciples to go and practice doing all the things that Jesus was doing. And so in the second teaching discourse of Matthew we find Jesus’s instructions to the twelve, as he sent them out into the towns and villages around Galilee in order to teach, to heal, and to proclaim the coming of God’s Kingdom. His message to the disciples then is just as essential for all who are called to be disciples of Jesus today.
