June 19-The Call: The Call to Be a Godly Man (Deuteronomy 6:4–9; Mark 1:17)

4 “Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God,
the Lord is one.

5 You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might.

6 And these words that I command
you today shall be on your heart.

7 You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise.

8 You shall bind them as a sign on your hand, and they shall be as
frontlets between your eyes.

9 You shall write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates.

Deuteronomy 6:4–9 (ESV)

with which he loved us,
5 even when we were dead in our trespasses, made us alive
together with Christ—
by grace you have been saved—

“For what will it profit a man if he gains the whole world and forfeits his soul? Or what shall a man give in return for his soul?”

Mark 1:17 (ESV)



Mind, Heart, and Hands



1. Come and Follow Me


A. Lord and Savior

1 My little children, I am writing these things to you so that you may not sin. But if anyone does sin, we have an advocate with the Father,
Jesus Christ the righteous.

2 He is the propitiation for our sins,
and not for ours only but also
for the sins of the whole world.

1 John 2:1–2 (ESV)


8 But what does it say? “The word is near you, in your mouth and in your heart” (that is, the word of faith that we proclaim);

9 because, if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.

10 For with the heart one believes and is justified, and with the mouth one confesses and is saved.

Romans 10:8–10 (ESV)



B. Walk as He Walked

5 but whoever keeps his word, in him truly the love of God is perfected.
By this we may know that
we are in him:

6 whoever says he abides in him
ought to walk in the same way
in which he walked.

1 John 2:5–6 (ESV)



“For to me to live is Christ,
and to die is gain.”

Philippians 1:21 (ESV)



2. And I Will Make You Become


22 to put off your old self, which belongs to your former manner of life and is corrupt through deceitful desires,
23 and to be renewed in the spirit of your minds,

24 and to put on the new self, created after the likeness of God in true righteousness and holiness.

Ephesians 4:22–24 (ESV)


4 Remain in me, and I in you. Just as a branch is unable to produce fruit by itself unless it remains on the vine, neither can you unless you remain in me.

5 I am the vine; you are the branches. The one who remains in me and I in him produces much fruit, because you can do nothing without me.

John 15:4–5 (CSB)



3. Fishers of Men


A. Committed to Christ’s Purpose- (Go and Make Disciples)











1 You then, my child, be strengthened by the grace that is in Christ Jesus,
2 and what you have heard from me in the presence of many witnesses entrust to faithful men, who will be able to teach others also.

2 Timothy 2:1–2 (ESV)
