1)Unwavering Love (Vs. 25- 27) A.Define: marked by firm determination or resolution; not shakable. Firm, steadfast, unbendable, unfaltering, unshakeable. B.Vs. 26 – Does Jesus literally mean Hate? C.Jesus tells us that those who do not place Him first cannot be My disciple. D.Vs. 27 – Are you just a believer or are you a cross bearer? 1)Again, Jesus says if you are not living in such a way that demonstrates this you cannot be My disciples.
2)Plan to be a Disciple. (Vs. 28-33) A.Jesus teaches that without planning before we start something, we are doomed to end in failure. 1)Do not just become a Christian, plan to be a disciple. B.Who is our enemy we must continue to fight to finish for Christ? Satan C.Vs. 33 – Jesus teaches us that if you are not willing to plan to be a Christian, plan to change your life for Him, and plan to forsake everything for Him you cannot be My disciple.
3)Do Not Lose Purpose. (Vs. 34-35) A.The same is true for our walk with the Lord, but Jesus expects us to continue to flavor the world with the Gospel. B.If we lose flavor as Christians, Jesus tells us exactly what we are good for, neither fit for the land nor for the dunghill, but men throw it out. C.Vs. 35 – He who has ears to hear, let him hear! 1)When Jesus uses this phrase He is commanding us to hear and to apply His teaching to our lives to be found faithful.
