Disciple Disciplines 4 – Readiness and Submission

Disciple Disciplines 4 – Readiness and Submission
WATERS: The Word Abides in our Thoughts of Encouragement, Readiness and Submission. Disciplines are something we walk in daily, to find our destiny 
1.READY to speak the Word, serve and pray for others
2.If I am so tied up in my need and my problem, I never see what others need.
2.1.1 Pet 3:15 always be ready to make a defense to everyone who asks you to give an account for the hope that is in you, yet with gentleness and reverence;
2.2.2 Tim 4:2 preach the word; be ready in season {and} out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort, with great patience and instruction.
3.SUBMIT yourselves one to another and Biblical leadership
4.Submission: Under the mission
5.Your destiny is not for you alone.
6.You cannot reach your destiny alone, or without leadership
7.Why we need prophets….
7.1.Ephesians 5:21 Place yourselves under each other's authority out of respect for Christ
7.2.Heb 13:17 Obey them that have the rule over you, and submit yourselves: for they watch for your souls, as they that must give account, that they may do it with joy, and not with grief: for that is unprofitable for you.
7.2.1.Your blessing comes through biblical submission
7.3.1Cor 16:16 Ye submit yourselves unto such, and to every one that helpeth with us, and laboureth.
7.4.1 Cor 4:15 For if you were to have countless tutors in Christ, yet {you would} not {have} many fathers, for in Christ Jesus I became your father through the gospel.
8.FINAL THOUGHTS: When the Word is in us, we are ready to use it to further God’s kingdom, that is our mission. Just like any soldier on a mission, we must understand the structure and leadership of God’s army.
