This week we are looking at the theme of discipleship. This is a very important theme, especially in the Diocese of Nottingham, because it is one of the Bishop’s three themes that he wants us to promote. We’re going to explore what the word means, and how we can incorporate it into our daily lives.

Image result for year of the wordThis year is the Year Of The Word. These green speech bubbles are around school to remind us that we need to focus on God’s word this year, and to remind us that God speaks to us through the Bible. Spend some time in prayer with God this week.

Also, remember that you have your red cards that you need to be filling in throughout Lent to raise money and awareness for CAFOD. You’ll need the red cards on the last day so make sure that you’re keeping them safe!

In this video we see many different titles that we give Jesus in our faith, but how often do we give ourselves those titles and realise that we too need to follow that example as disciples of Christ?

How can you…

… be entirely sincere?

… give strength to the weak?

… serve the unfortunate?

Disciples don’t just listen to these things, they live by them. How will you know your saviour today?

Jesus drew near and said to them, “I have been given all authority in heaven and on earth. Go, then, to all peoples everywhere and make them my disciples: baptise them in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, and teach them to obey everything I have commanded you. And I will be with you always, to the end of the age.”

Matthew 28:18-20

 

This piece of scripture is also known as The Great Commission. They are the last words that Jesus speaks before he ascends into Heaven, and they are spoken to his disciples on Mount Galilee.

But the Great Commission was not meant only for those first disciples of Jesus. The language it uses shows us that it is also the mission of all believers in every place and in every age of history. The Great Commission therefore defines the mission of the Church.

 Long before businesses and organisations started having mission statements, Jesus already gave the Church this mission statement, and it hasn’t changed in the last 2,000 years. And therefore it is meant to be our mission as well.

Have a think today about our mission as disciples, and how you fulfil that in your daily life. Comment below!
