Where Does Real Courage Come From?

Thursday, September 2, 2010


Question for you: Are you in discipleship this fall?

What do I mean?

Being in discipleship is something intentional. It’s more than being in a bible study. It’s more than doing private devotions. Both well and good and important in the Christian life. But discipleship is more.

It’s intentional.

It’s done in community.

It’s a passionate desire to grow and mature in Jesus.

It’s where Christians older in the Lord come alongside those younger in Him.

It’s where the Bible is integrated into our lives.

It’s where we see Christians encouraging one another, holding each other accountable, and spurring each other on to live outrageous for Jesus.

It’s where we see change. In us – and in others.

It’s where worship deepens.

It’s where we learn to pray with passion.

It’s where we begin to see the Holy Spirit giving us a heart for service and mission; for those inside the church and for those outside.

It’s where the Bible comes alive. Step by step from the beginning, as the Lord teaches us the elementary principles of His word and grows us.

It’s the only way to become mature – complete in Christ.

Discipleship: It’s what Jesus told us to do – Go and make disciples!

It’s how we come to know Him more and more, so we can say with the apostles Paul: I want to know Christ!

So – let me ask it again: Are you in discipleship this fall?

This is so awesome! What great sustaining direction for disciples making disciples as well as the encouragement to "jump in" and be a disciple. I can just "hear" your strong and annointed voice through your words.
