Luke 9v46-56 - Three questions about discipleship

Adobe Acrobat

Discipleship is very different to how people imagine it today in Kenya. Christianity is not what they think. So, we are going back to the source in the Bible to see what Jesus really taught. When we go back to the Bible, we find that Jesus' apostles themselves were confused. Even people in those days did not understand real discipleship. True discipleship is harder; but it is also better. It brings true joy and truly worth-while lives. What use is a title deed to all Eldoret, if it is a fake? We need the real thing!

Luke 9:46-56

46Then there arose a reasoning among them, which of them should be greatest. 47And Jesus, perceiving the thought of their heart, took a child, and set him by him, 48And said unto them, Whosoever shall receive this child in my name receiveth me: and whosoever shall receive me receiveth him that sent me: for he that is least among you all, the same shall be great. 49And John answered and said, Master, we saw one casting out devils in thy name; and we forbad him, because he followeth not with us. 50And Jesus said unto him, Forbid him not: for he that is not against us is for us. 51And it came to pass, when the time was come that he should be received up, he stedfastly set his face to go to Jerusalem, 52And sent messengers before his face: and they went, and entered into a village of the Samaritans, to make ready for him. 53And they did not receive him, because his face was as though he would go to Jerusalem. 54And when his disciples James and John saw this, they said, Lord, wilt thou that we command fire to come down from heaven, and consume them, even as Elias did? 55But he turned, and rebuked them, and said, Ye know not what manner of spirit ye are of. 56For the Son of man is not come to destroy men's lives, but to save them. And they went to another village. (KJV)
