[highlight]Lesson #04: THE BRIEFING – CROSSroads: Jesus on Truth, Children, & Discipleship (September 24, 2014)[/highlight]

SUMMARY: In previous lessons, we have seen that we live in a culture that attacks absolute truth and God’s pattern for the family. Lesson three focused on the solution to these problems: discipleship. If Christians, disciples of Jesus, don’t stand up to defend God’s Word and to spread Christ’s light in our dark world, then who will?

This lesson focuses specifically on the teachings of Jesus relative to all three of these previously-studied topics. We will see how the truth, our families, and discipleship all tie together as we examine two major areas of emphasis:

  1. INFORMATION about Discipleship
  2. An ILLUSTRATION of Discipleship

Looking at these two areas of interest, three important concepts will come to light. First, we will see “the big three,” three things that Christians cannot afford to forget in our Christian journey. Second, we “none of self, all of Thee.” There is no room for self in discipleship. It’s all about Jesus. Finally, we will notice the little children discussed in Matthew 18:1-5; 19:13-14.
