The word that should come to mind when you think of Lent is…“Intentionality”
Today Pastor Jimmy began his sermon series for Lent with an introduction to the difference between being a Christian and being a Disciple. The first followers of Jesus didn’t call themselves Christians. It was a derogatory term used by people outside of the faith. In Acts 11:26, we see that the first Christians were known as disciples.
The word Christian is used three times in the whole Bible; the word disciple is used 281 times. A Disciple is a far more accurate and compelling description of what it means to follow Jesus.
Today we’ll see, the concept of a disciple exposes the fact that many who claim to be Christians are not actually disciples of Jesus.
