      MASTERING THE FUNDAMENTALS
OF BEING A FOLLOWER OF JESUS CHRIST

 

We must learn these fundamentals, just as sports participants
 must learn the fundamentals of their respective sport:

           Football:  Block, Tackle, Run, Catch

           Baseball:  Hit, Catch, Throw

           Basketball:  Dribble, Shoot, Pass

           Tennis:  Fore-hand, Back-hand, Serve, & Volley

           Fishing:  Casting, Hooking, Reeling, Netting

 

The Occasion:

 JESUS’ GREAT SERMON

          An encouragement to the common people
            An inventory of moral conduct

 

JESUS’ GREAT ILLUSTRATIONS

First Illustration:

    WHO IS YOUR TEACHER?

    The blind leading the blind

           A blind man cannot guide a blind man can he?     (NO)

           Will they not both fall into a pit?                              (Yes)

    To whom are you listening?

             A pupil is not above his teacher

           After training, the pupil will be like his teacher
Second Illustration:

   ARE YOU TRULY COMPETENT TO JUDGE OTHERS?

         Why are you trying to correct others, when you
               have even greater faults?

        Attend to yourself first, then perhaps you may be
               able to help others.

Third Illustration:

    WHAT KIND OF FRUIT ARE YOU BEARING?

           A good tree produces good fruit, as a good person
               at heart brings forth good things in life.

         A bad tree does not produce good fruit, as a bad
               person brings forth corruption from the things
               that they treasure.

 

                      Evidence:  The mouth speaks

                         from that which fills the heart

 

                             The Great Question

                    Why do you call Me ‘Lord, Lord,’
                        and do not do what I say?

 

     JESUS’ GREAT APPLICATION

The one who hears My words and acts on them is a wise builder.

     His foundation is solid, built on the rock

     When the storms of life come, his house will stand

The one who hears My words and has not acted accordingly is a                    foolish builder.

     His home has no foundation

     When the storms of life come, his house will collapse, and his life will                       be ruined

 

                  Be assured: Storms Will Come

 

                              Are you ready?

 

                         OUR FUNDAMENTALS

             AS FOLLOWERS OF JESUS CHRIST:

                            Listen to the Teacher

                            Attend to Oneself

                            Bring forth good fruit

                            Hear and ACT accordingly
