What Kind of Disciple Am I? (AM)

Scripture Reading:  Matthew 21:28–31


A.  On his three missionary journeys, Paul traveled more than 5,000 miles with a number of different companions.

B.  Three of these men were Demas, Mark, and Luke (2 Timothy 4:10–11).


I.  Am I a disciple like Demas?

A.  This man was once a fellow-laborer (Philemon 24).

B.  By the time Paul wrote his second letter to Timothy, however, this disciple had forsaken him (2 Timothy 4:10).

C.  Like so many, this brother had allowed the cares of the world to choke out God’s word (Matthew 13:22).

II.  Am I a disciple like Mark?

A.  This man was from a great family (Acts 12:12; Colossians 4:10).

B.  In spite of this, he showed weakness in the flesh in his earlier years (Acts 13:13; 15:36–41).

C.  Later, however, Paul found him “useful to me for ministry” (2 Timothy 4:11).

III.  Am I a disciple like Luke?

A.  This brother, the author of two New Testament books, is known as “the beloved physician” (Colossians 4:14).

B.  Although he never mentions himself by name in his narratives, he was with Paul for much of his travels (Acts 16:8–10; 20:5–6).

C.  He would stand with Paul to the end (2 Timothy 4:11).


A.  Even when all forsake us, we know that there is One who never has and who never will (2 Timothy 4:16–18; Hebrews 13:5).

B.  God has never forsaken us. May we never forsake Him!
