In my previous article I said running a Discovery Bible Study (DBS) is simple. So why do we want an app? I must confess I once thought that myself. Until we were contacted by some people who desperately needed it.
It was no longer words in book – it was living in their hearts.
We hear this kind of thing often. It’s one of the reasons we love DBS. It enables anyone to share what they are learning about God with their community, even if they are only just discovering faith for themselves.
When faced with something that makes me feel uncomfortable, I look to God and I think of Daniel. Like sitting with lions, I can also sit with whatever is before me now.
The resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead is not something simply to celebrate at Easter. It is good news for all people. This message must be proclaimed everywhere.
If you want to see a multiplication movement, switch from simply training disciples to training disciplemaking trainers. Don’t just train leaders, train leaders who are training leaders. Every time you train someone to do anything, include an emphasis in your training on how they can pass the training on to others.
Christ’s strategy was disciplemaking. Therefore, the Church (those who belong to and follow Christ) must be disciple makers.
Jesus strategy of disciplemaking involved investing in a few men, calling them to be with Him, grounding them in His truths.
In a very simple sense – the Church brings God glory by engaging in the mission on which Jesus sent His disciples – to go and make disciples!
Go make MORE disciples.
Go make BETTER disciples. I think it’s a both/and proposition.
As I woke up this morning, I had the distinct impression that God was interested in one question:
Even before I woke up I sensed this question rolling around in my mind: Who?
There’s something wrong in our churches today with our commitment to discipleship.
Churches are too focused on helping people to live the “Christian life” as if all Jesus expects of His followers is to be good Christians.
