Discipleship: Taking up a Cross and a Shovel
Luke 6:46-6:49 
CBC 9/9/2012 SN

READ: Luke 6:46-49 Why do you call Me, Lord, Lord, and do not [practice] what I tell you?
47 For everyone who comes to Me and listens to My words [in order to heed their teaching] and does them, I will show you what he is like:
48 He is like a man building a house, who dug and went down deep and laid a foundation upon the rock; and when a flood arose, the torrent broke against that house and could not shake or move it, because it had been securely built or [a]founded on a rock.
49 But he who merely hears and does not practice doing My words is like a man who built a house on the ground without a foundation, against which the torrent burst, and immediately it collapsed and fell, and the breaking and ruin of that house was great.
- in verse 46 - Jesus ASKS A CONDEMNING QUESTION
- in verse 47 - Jesus CALLS FOR DECISIVE ACTION
- in verse 48 - Jesus GIVES A DRAMATIC ILLUSTRATION
1. JESUS ASKS A CONDEMNING QUESTION
  • Is Jesus LORD of our lives?
    • or is TRADITION & PREFERENCE the Lord of our lives?
    • Jesus sees our action as we exhibit being “HEARERS of the Word but not DOERS of the Word.”
    • Living for Jesus will have a RADICAL IMPACT on our lives
  • Why do you call Jesus Lord and not practice what He asked us to do?
    • don’t forget these verses...
    • “Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven.Many will say to Me in that day, ‘Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?’ And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!’”
    • Don’t get trapped doing the SIDE ISSUES 
2. JESUS CALLS FOR DECISIVE ACTION v47
a) “COMES TO ME”
b) “HEARS MY SAYINGS”
c) “DOES THEM”
3. JESUS GIVES A DRAMATIC ILLUSTRATION v47-49
