A Disciple Maker's Pain

February 2, 2014
Sermon Notes: 
Scripture Reference: 
Colossians 1:24-2:5

Pastor Mark describes three mysteries of discipleship. A biblical mystery is something that has been hidden in the past but now is revealed. Even though the NT reveals several mysteries, we can never fully understand them. This sermon especially emphasizes the mystery of suffering, focusing on the Coptic Christians in Egypt, with 40 church burned in the last half of 2013.

Normally, when we pray for one another, we pray for healing from diseases or help in emergencies. The Apostle Paul suggest a different kind of prayer--prayer for better disciples. The passage from Colossians teaches us how to pray for a disciple's head, hands and heart.
