Being & Building Followers & Friends of Jesus

Eighteen months ago I asked the Lord Jesus to show me the Bull's Eye for Christians as they begin to walk out their lives one day at a time. By Christians, I mean those who love the Lord Jesus because He first loved them and gave Himself for them. So many say they "accepted" the Lord Jesus meaning it was their decision in their mind to accept Christ; can't find that concept in the New Testament though. The entering point for truly Born Again Christians is the moment the Holy Spirit begins to "draw" them (as an unbeliever) to Christ. Jesus said in John 6:44, "44 No man can come to me, except the Father who has sent me draw him: and I will raise him up at the last day". Ahhhh, The Entering Point!, "saved by grace through faith" not because you have done great works or earned it in any way; only because He (God) loved you long before you loved Him.

But what is the "Bull's Eye" for the Born Again believer after he/she has entered into salvation? Christ discipleship has a starting place, an entering place where we enter into His Kingdom through the "portal" of salvation and that is a place where salvation is not by works, or our strong religious beliefs, but a place where the Holy Spirit has sought you and bought you by the Precious Shed Blood of Jesus Christ, and now He wants to teach you so that you may say as I now say, "He sought me, bought me and taught me". Now I want to teach others how to be discipled and what is the Bull's Eye that maintains the excitement and the fire in my bones that makes me want to cry out, "He is alive indeed"!
