What Does A Disciple Do?

In the series we just completed at Celebration Church we asked the question, “Who Do You Think You Are?” We have been looking at our identity, not in who the world says we are but who God’s word says we are. The Bible says we are Christ’s Ambassador, we are His Masterpieces and we are Overcomers. This week we are looking at what a Disciple is but also in very practical ways what a Disciple does.   
What Does A Disciple Do?
A Disciple listens:
My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me. John 10:27
The primary way that God speaks to us is through His Word, the Bible. Unless we are listening though we will miss the treasures that He wants to impart to us.
How can we ensure that we are listening and have the open hearts to be receptive to what God wants to say to us every day? 1 Samuel 3:9 suggests that if we have an expectant eagerness for God to speak to us we will hear Him.  "Speak, LORD, for your servant is listening"  
What if we approached our quiet time with God each day with an attitude of anticipation. Let’s set our hearts and minds each day to a place of readiness as we anticipate hearing from God.
Your pastor and partner in ministry,
