Renewal in Discipleship

Passage: Daniel 1
Service Type:

In this message John Savage shares about a renewal in discipleship.  He shares about the spiritual key of discipline within our discipleship, and the training and equipping that takes place when we follow spiritual disciplines as followers (disciples) of our Lord Jesus Christ.

As part of this message John showed a video clip, however we had a technical hiccup and the sound wasn't present.  I have uploaded that clip HERE for you to enjoy.

    Thanks for the message John.

    My Favourite bit was this story:

    There was a rabbi who was taking a long journey to climb to the top of Mt. Sinai. As he was about to begin, a scorpion approached him and said that he also was going to the top of Mt. Sinai. “Would it be possible for me to ride on your shoulder on this journey“asked the scorpion? At first, the rabbi was adamant, “NO! You will sting me and leave me to die on the path!” But the scorpion was very persuasive and he finally convinced the rabbi that it would be stupid to sting and kill his ride to the top, because then the scorpion wouldn’t get to the destination, either. So the rabbi consented and put the scorpion on his shoulder. When they had almost reached the summit, the scorpion suddenly stung the rabbi in the jugular vein, causing him to crumple to his knees, and start the painful death throes that accompany the scorpion’s venom. The rabbi gasped, “Why? How could you do this? Why did you trick me?’” The scorpion replied, “I didn’t trick you-you knew what I was when you picked me up!”
