Discipleship Lesson 22
a servant's heart
DO NOT disciple yourself. Using this guide to disciple yourself is NOT Biblical. This discipleship curriculum is designed to be taught to you or for you to use in teaching a disciple to surrender their life to Jesus and follow Him. Please be sure that you are ready and able to teach Gods word. Seek wise counsel and consult with your pastor before taking a big step like this. And be ready for questions from those you disciple. Feel free to message me regarding questions or concerns. I respond quickly.
4 “Remember the law of my servant Moses, the statutes and rules that I commanded him at Horeb for all Israel.
67 And his father Zechariah was filled with the Holy Spirit and prophesied, saying,
68 “Blessed be the Lord God of Israel,
for He has visited and redeemed His people
69 and has raised up a horn of salvation for us
in the house of His servant David,
Mary's Song of Praise: The Magnificat
46 And Mary said,
“My soul magnifies the Lord,
47 and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior,
48 for He has looked on the humble estate of His servant.
For behold, from now on all generations will call me blessed;
49 for He who is mighty has done great things for me,
and Holy is His name.
50 And His mercy is for those who fear Him
from generation to generation.
51 He has shown strength with His arm;
He has scattered the proud in the thoughts of their hearts;
52 He has brought down the mighty from their thrones
and exalted those of humble estate;
53 He has filled the hungry with good things,
and the rich He has sent away empty.
54 He has helped His servant Israel,
in remembrance of His mercy,
55 as He spoke to our fathers,
to Abraham and to his offspring forever.”
God's Chosen Servant
15 Jesus, aware of this, withdrew from there. And many followed Him, and He healed them all 16 and ordered them not to make Him known. 17 This was to fulfill what was spoken by the prophet Isaiah:
18 “Behold, my Servant whom I have chosen,
my Beloved with whom My soul is well pleased.
I will put My Spirit upon Him,
and He will proclaim justice to the Gentiles.
19 He will not quarrel or cry aloud,
nor will anyone hear His voice in the streets;
20 a bruised reed He will not break,
and a smoldering wick He will not quench,
until He brings justice to victory;
21 and in His name the Gentiles will hope.”
42 And Jesus called them to Him and said to them, “You know that those who are considered rulers of the Gentiles lord it over them, and their great ones exercise authority over them. 43 But it shall not be so among you. But whoever would be great among you must be your servant, 44 and whoever would be first among you must be slave of all. 45 For even the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve, and to give His life as a ransom for many.”
15 No longer do I call you servants, for the servant does not know what his master is doing; but I have called you friends, for all that I have heard from My Father I have made known to you.
20 Remember the word that I said to you: ‘A servant is not greater than his master.’ If they persecuted Me, they will also persecute you. If they kept My word, they will also keep yours. 21 But all these things they will do to you on account of My name, because they do not know Him who sent Me.
13 No servant can serve two masters, for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and money.”
Paul Tells of His Conversion
12 “In this connection I journeyed to Damascus with the authority and commission of the chief priests. 13 At midday, O king, I saw on the way a light from heaven, brighter than the sun, that shone around me and those who journeyed with me. 14 And when we had all fallen to the ground, I heard a voice saying to me in the Hebrew language, ‘Saul, Saul, why are you persecuting Me? It is hard for you to kick against the goads.’ 15 And I said, ‘Who are You, Lord?’ And the Lord said, ‘I am Jesus whom you are persecuting. 16 But rise and stand upon your feet, for I have appeared to you for this purpose, to appoint you as a servant and witness to the things in which you have seen Me and to those in which I will appear to you,
1 Paul, a servant of Christ Jesus, called to be an apostle, set apart for the gospel of God, 2 which He promised beforehand through His prophets in the holy Scriptures, 3 concerning His Son, who was descended from David according to the flesh 4 and was declared to be the Son of God in power according to the Spirit of holiness by His resurrection from the dead, Jesus Christ our Lord,
1 Corinthians 9:19
19 For though I am free from all, I have made myself a servant to all, that I might win more of them. 20 To the Jews I became as a Jew, in order to win Jews. To those under the law I became as one under the law (though not being myself under the law) that I might win those under the law. 21 To those outside the law I became as one outside the law (not being outside the law of God but under the law of Christ) that I might win those outside the law. 22 To the weak I became weak, that I might win the weak. I have become all things to all people, that by all means I might save some. 23 I do it all for the sake of the gospel, that I may share with them in its blessings.
7 Tychicus will tell you all about my activities. He is a beloved brother and faithful minister and fellow servant in the Lord.
12 Epaphras, who is one of you, a servant of Christ Jesus, greets you, always struggling on your behalf in his prayers, that you may stand mature and fully assured in all the will of God.
13 For you were called to freedom, brothers. Only do not use your freedom as an opportunity for the flesh, but through love serve one another.
1 Peter 4:10
8 Above all, keep loving one another earnestly, since love covers a multitude of sins. 9 Show hospitality to one another without grumbling. 10 As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another, as good stewards of God's varied grace:
