The Path of Discipleship: Making Disciples

Dr. Brad Hoffmann, pastor
How does my life speak?
Acts 4:36–37 (ESV): Thus Joseph, who was also called by the apostles Barnabas (which means
son of encouragement), a Levite, a native of Cyprus, 37 sold a field that belonged to him and
brought the money and laid it at the apostles’ feet.
What is the potential you see?
Acts 9:26–28 (ESV): And when he had come to Jerusalem, he attempted to join the disciples.
And they were all afraid of him, for they did not believe that he was a disciple. 27 But Barnabas
took him and brought him to the apostles and declared to them how on the road he had seen
the Lord, who spoke to him, and how at Damascus he had preached boldly in the name of Jesus.
28 So he went in and out among them at Jerusalem, preaching boldly in the name of the Lord.
Who will you take on the journey?
Acts 11:22–26 (ESV): The report of this came to the ears of the church in Jerusalem, and they
sent Barnabas to Antioch. 23 When he came and saw the grace of God, he was glad, and he
exhorted them all to remain faithful to the Lord with steadfast purpose, 24 for he was a good
man, full of the Holy Spirit and of faith. And a great many people were added to the Lord. 25 So
Barnabas went to Tarsus to look for Saul, 26 and when he had found him, he brought him to
Antioch. For a whole year they met with the church and taught a great many people. And in
Antioch the disciples were first called Christians.
Who needs a second chance?
Acts 15:36–41 (ESV): And after some days Paul said to Barnabas, “Let us return and visit the
brothers in every city where we proclaimed the word of the Lord, and see how they are.”
37 Now Barnabas wanted to take with them John called Mark. 38 But Paul thought best not to
take with them one who had withdrawn from them in Pamphylia and had not gone with them
to the work. 39 And there arose a sharp disagreement, so that they separated from each other.
Barnabas took Mark with him and sailed away to Cyprus, 40 but Paul chose Silas and departed,
having been commended by the brothers to the grace of the Lord. 41 And he went through
Syria and Cilicia, strengthening the churches.
Let your life speak.
Look for the potential.
Travel well on the journey.
Invite the broken.
