Sermon Notes from Sunday, 5.6.12

Here are the sermon notes from Sunday, 5.6.12, kicking off the Follow series where we'll look at Jesus' teaching on discipleship.  You can find these notes in PDF and the sermon audio at  You can also find the sermon audio on iTunes via our podcast.

Part 1 – Listen to what Jesus says 

John 8.31-­‐32 

  • False distinction: Christian vs. Disciple.
  • Jesus assumes we will follow Him because those are His terms.
  • Word: the standard and path for real life.
  • Intake: the spiritual nourishment from the Bible that comes from quality time in it.
  • Workout: the spiritual exercise of doing what Jesus says is best.

  • This is the freedom that comes from transformation.
  • Our lineage is precisely our problem (v.33)
  • Our actions continue our captivity (v.34-­‐35)
  • Our Savior liberates our lives (v.36).
