II. Jesus Assembling His Team
The Call to Discipleship
The goal is to tell people about Jesus, try to lead them to the Lord, and then
prayerfully take them under your wing and help them get on their feet
The Invitation To Consider
"Come and see" – Jesus is still inviting people to consider Him. We are
living in a world where people are seeking answers. They are looking for
direction, fulfillment and hope. If you are among that number and you are
looking for more from life, you need to know that His invitation to "Come and
see" still stands. ...

Jesus the invitation is extended, a gracious and wide open invitation.

Sometimes it is poverty. So the question is, "What seek ye?" What is your
motivation in seeking Jesus? ..

Have You Encountered God Today?
Jesus is still showing up today, often in the midst of our most difficult
storms. Sometimes it's even on the Moon! As we encounter Him in a personal
way, Jesus is calling us to take courage, to step out of our boats of
security and trust Him. ...
