INTRODUCTION

We will begin our detailed study by studying two of the Master’s men — Peter & Andrew who happened to be brothers in the flesh. We had learned in our previous sermon that it is not uncommon for God to call people from the same family.

While Peter and Andrew came from the same father and mother, the contrast between them is quite glaring. One was LOUD & the other SILENT.

I’d like to present to you a description of them as the gospels reveal. I stated our objective in this study last time and that is to SEE ourselves in them. We will see our own CHARACTER TRAITS as well as our WEAKNESSES in them, thereby being INSPIRED to LIVE like them as Christ TRANSFORMED them.

Apostles have been portrayed as men with “halos” on their heads. Children, cathedrals, cities are NAMED after them. But the Bible exposes them with all their WEAKNESSES – warts and all! Yet, they TRANSFORMED the world around them.

In studying these 2 brothers, I’d like to use the MATRIX of the BASIS & PROGRAM of DISCIPLESHIP of Jesus Christ which we had studied last weekend.

BODY SERMON

TEXT:Matthew 10:2-3

1. RIGHT RAW MATERIAL
– Clearly, Jesus’ CHOICES were DIAMONDS in the ROUGH that needed a lot of POLISHING.

2 RIGHT EXPERIENCES
– Jesus gave them these experiences to MATURE them.

3. RIGHT ATTITUDES
– Jesus taught him the principles of GODLY LEADERSHIP.

CONCLUSION

You may be the LOUD type or the SILENT type.
Whatever you are, God can use you if you submit to His discipleship program.
