HOW TO BUILD YOUR CORE TEAM & TO BE PART OF THE INNER CIRCLE : LESSONS FROM JESUS 

Matthew 5:1-2 MSG

“When Jesus saw his ministry drawing huge crowds, he CLIMBED a hillside. Those who were apprenticed to him, the COMMITTED, climbed with him. Arriving at a quiet place, he sat down and taught his climbing companions. This is what he said…”

Nobody was as smart and wise as Jesus. That’s why I study his word. Let me unpack this one for you…

INSIGHT

1. Jesus was drawing large crowds – and he knew the majority of them were CURIOUS but not SERIOUS

2. In life you have HANGERS ON and the CLINGERS ON. Hangers-on come for benefits, clingers-on come to serve. Discern the difference!

3. Jesus CLIMBED a hillside to eliminate the uncommitted. Once he had eliminated the CROWDS…He started unleashing CLOUD stuff – what we know as THE BEATITUDES. 

4. You must always TEST before you TASTE or TRUST 

5. Don’t share everything with everybody. Jesus only shared with those “apprenticed” to Him

A few afterthoughts:

~If you want to be part of an inner circle – serve with your HEART not just your HEAD (ideas) and HANDS (skills)

~When you serve always think about what you can GIVE than what you can GET

~Those who CLIMB with you will never let you DOWN
