What Matters Most to God in a Disciple? (Part 5)

“. . . I have learned in whatever situation I am to be content.” (Philippians 4:11b ESV). If you just joined our journey of discovery into what matters most to God, we are taking a reflective walk through 1 Corinthians 13:4. The third quality that people see in followers who reflect Christlike love is the absence of envy. …See More

What Matters Most to God in a Disciple? (Part 1)

The most fulfilling journey in life is the path of a person who has an intimate relationship with God, and who faithfully follows Him. Is it the easiest path to walk? No. Is it the inside track to popularity? No. But is it the inside track to joy? Yes, for eternal reasons. Step one, for any person who yearns to experience this journey (i.e., a “disciple”), starts at the cross of Jesus Christ (John 3:16). It includes genuine conviction, humble repentance, and new loyalty. It is more than…See More

Discipling and the Protestant Reformation (Part 2 of 2)

I noted in last week’s post that Christianity experienced a seismic paradigm shift when Martin Luther and other reformers essentially zero-based the church’s traditional doctrine of salvation and rebuilt it using only God’s Word—“Sola Scriptura.” Then I stepped back from the details and considered applying that same strategy to discipling ourselves and others. I asked you, “If we zero-base our understanding of what it means to disciple ourselves and others, and then rebuild our understanding…See More

Discipling and the Protestant Reformation

How special it is for us to be alive 500 years after the Protestant Reformation began in Wittenberg! This is an excellent time to thank God for what He did during those years to revolutionize peoples’ understanding of His Word, transform their hearts, and move them from uncertainty and fear through the church to confidence and freedom through Christ. The core outcome of the Reformation was the revolution in scriptural understanding and worship by parishioners through direct access to God and…See More

Discipling & Harvey

Our tragic Hurricane Harvey has a golden lining: thousands of people praying, caring, & sharing their faith while working together to rescue lives and meet needs caused by that crisis.But what do you suppose will happen when the spotlight shifts to the next public crisis? Yes, you're probably right: Emotion, money, and momentum will move mostly to that next media moment. And then the next one after that.As a fellow disciple with you, and in the context of discipling others whom you…See More

What Matters Most to God in a Disciple? (Part 4)

“A man was going down from Jerusalem to Jericho, when he fell into the hands of robbers. They stripped him of his clothes, beat him and went away, leaving him half dead. A priest happened to be going down the same road, and when he saw the man, he passed by on the other side. So too, a Levite, when he came to the place and saw him, passed by on the other side.

But a Samaritan, as he traveled, came where the…

What Matters Most to God in a Disciple? (Part 3)

Parts 1 and 2, in this series about what matters most to God in a disciple, focused on a very challenging reality: For a person who places their faith in Jesus Christ alone as their Savior from “the wages of sin,” following God means much more than learning about Him and skillfully studying the Bible.

In fact, the disciple who focuses only on growing in knowledge and skill will fail sooner or later. Formula:…

Good Day,

 How is everything with you, I picked interest on you after going through
your short profile and deemed it necessary to write you immediately. I have
something very vital to disclose to you, but I found it difficult to
express myself here, since it's a public site.Could you please get back
to me on:( mrs.awounyodoris@gmail.com) for the full
details.

Have a nice day

Thanks God bless.

Mrs Awounyo.
