Strengthening Summit – Wednesday, January 15, 2014 – How to be a Disciple of Jesus
Start Group with a prayer to Holy Spirit:
O, Holy Spirit, beloved of our souls, we adore You. Enlighten us, guide us, strengthen us, console us. Tell us what we should do. Give us your orders. We promise to submit ourselves to all that You desire of us and to accept all that you permit to happen to us. Let us only know Your will.
Someone should then read the scripture verse:
Then Jesus said to his disciples, “Whoever wishes to come after me must deny himself,* take up his cross, and follow me. For whoever wishes to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for my sake will find it. What profit would there be for one to gain the whole world and forfeit his life? Or what can one give in exchange for his life? For the Son of Man will come with his angels in his Father’s glory, and then he will repay everyone according to his conduct. (Matthew 16:24-27)
- How do I prove that I am a disciple of Jesus Christ?
- Do others know that I am a disciple? How?
- What must I do to be a better disciple of Jesus?
End with the Lord’s Prayer
