Responsibility of Being a Disciple

Passage: Acts 9:1-20, John 21:1-19
Service Type:

In the gospel lesson Jesus reminds Peter that his responsibility as a disciple is to feed God’s sheep, and tend for God’s lambs.  In the Acts lesson, Paul is called to discipleship; but Ananias is reminded that obedience to God may mean speaking to people we fear and have no reason to trust.  His obedience is what completes the conversion of Saul into a disciple of Jesus.  If he had not done as God asked, the church would have been deprived of one of its earliest leaders.

We are to care for God’s people, even the scary ones.
