I want to share some practical advice to go with the Discipleship and Jesus Christ podcast series.
1. Jesus Christ understood how to use all the resources that God has made available to him.
Since Jesus Christ is God, he was able to use all of the power, knowledge, wisdom and other resources that God has given to the Church to their full potential while he was here on earth. I mention that because everything we can see Jesus doing in the Gospel is something that the Church as a whole has the potential to accomplish today since we are His body.
(See 1 Corinthians 12:27)
2. Jesus Christ used all of God's resources that are available to use the same way we are supposed to.
The main part of Jesus' ministry work was focused on discipleship. Being a disciple in the first century meant you were becoming someone who could be the kind of person your Rabbi was in the ordinary and unpredictable moments of life. Eventually, Jesus' disciples were given the responsibility of sharing what they learned with others. (See Matthew 28:18-20)
3. Breaking whatever sinful habits we have can improve our character and our ability to use God's resources the way Jesus Christ did.
This process of breaking sinful habits that prevent us from becoming more skilled at used God's resources the way Jesus Christ did is the only weak point in God's plan for His Church. If Satan can make God's Church willing to accept their sinful habits then our potential to use God's resources has been compromised.
The whole point of the ministry is to make sure that compromise never happens.
(See Ephesians 4:1-16)
