DNA of a Disciple – #1: Earner to Heir (John 15: 12-17, Titus 3:4-8)
Welcome back as we wrapped up our Missions Month! As we continue through John 15, we will focus on the DNA of a disciple – essentially the distinctives that make someone a disciple. As we go through them, we can break it down to the: 1) journey 2) action and 3) mantra, to help us live this out. The first “DNA” or distinctive is that followers of Christ go from being an EARNER to an HEIR. From a young age and even as we grow older, we tend to ask ourselves, “Am I good enough?”. Whether it comes to school, sports, career, or family – we have this earner’s mentality. As we go through this [journey], we must learn that we are not earners but rather heirs with Christ, and that we must trust Him [action] because ultimately, we are worse off than we think but more loved than we know [mantra].
