40 Days of Prayer 2018

Day 12 - January 12, 2018 - Disciple-making

Posted by Cory Granata on

Colossians 1:28-29

28 He is the one we proclaim, admonishing and teaching everyone with all wisdom, so that we may present everyone fully mature in Christ. 29 To this end I strenuously contend with all the energy Christ so powerfully works in me.

 

Yesterday we learned that Paul proclaimed Christ by warning and teaching everyone with all wisdom. We observed that he was motivated to present everyone fully mature in Christ.  He was not satisfied with seeing people only profess faith in Christ. He desperately wanted to see them mature. Today we continue our study of disciple-making by focusing on verse 29.

 

  1. Write out verse 29 below.

 

 

 

 

  1. In order to see everyone fully mature in Christ, what does Paul do?

 

 

 

 

  1. How does Paul describe his contending or laboring?

 

 

 

 

  1. What attributes of Christ do you see in verse 29?

 

 

 

 

  1. What effect does Christ’s energy have on Paul?

 

 

 

 

  1. What is Paul’s primary message to the Colossians in these two verses (which is God’s message to us)?

 

 

 

Family Discussion:

  1. Paul says in Colossians 1:28 that he “admonishes and teaches everyone with all wisdom, so that we may present everyone fully mature in Christ.” Why do you think teaching is important in disciple-making?
  2. What are some things that disciples of Jesus would need to know in order to be mature or grown up?

Praise and Thanks – How can I praise God for life’s greatest treasure, Jesus Christ?

 

 

 

 

Confession and Help – How can I ask God to help me mature in my faith?

 

 

 

 

Intercession – How can WE [the church body] share Jesus Christ with others?
