Intentional Discipleship

The United States has more churches, Bibles, and Christian resources available per capita than any other nation on the planet. 79.5% of Americans claim to be Christians, and yet our country is in a moral turmoil and nothing in popular culture looks Christian. The church has lost its moral voice in our culture. Why is that?

 A Radical Church Growth Program - Discipleship 101

Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age. – Matthew 28:19-20

Identifying Marks

A few years ago while in India, we visited a leprosy community. The men and women there bear the marks of the deadly disease, marks that are clearly identifiable. Misshapen or missing fingers, toes, noses and in extreme cases limbs, set them apart and prevent those who bear these marks from living among the people in other villages.

 Marks of a Disciple

If you’re a Christian, have you thought about what your number one priority should be? David Platt powerfully explains the urgency of this for believers.

Guest Blogger: Dr. David Platt, Pastor at The Church at Brook Hills, is deeply devoted to Christ and His Word. He has authored several books, Radical, Radical Together, and Follow Me. He is the founder of Radical (Radical.net) a resource ministry dedicated to serving the church in making disciples of all nations. Precept Ministries is honored to have David as one of our guest bloggers.

Scripture gives us a number of ways to know who is truly a follower of Christ. For example, those who repent of their sin, trust in Christ, and surrender to his lordship have the marks of a true disciple. Those are foundational responses to the gospel. But did you know that being a disciple also means that you ought to be making disciples?

If you’re a follower of Christ, you weren’t made to be a spectator; you were made to be a disciple-maker.

Different Parts, One Mission

In 1 Corinthians 12 we see that as the body of Christ, even as a local body of Christ, we all represent different parts, or members, of the body. We have different skills, giftings, and personalities. We’re unique—the eye, the foot, the hand, etc.—but we come together in one body and we have a mission to accomplish in this world. And this mission involves every single one of us.

Who is Allah?

“You (Jews, Muslims, and Christians) are all talking to the same God! Why can’t you agree and just get along.”

Anything Worth Having Costs Something

Recently my husband has been hunting a new pair of walking shoes for me. Daily he goes to a particular site, looking for a specific brand in my size. At some point he will call me to come to see if there are any I like. On several occasions I have found “the perfect shoe”. My husband breathes a sigh of relief realizing the object of his hunt is in his sights! The adrenaline is rushing as he is ready to pull the trigger and bring home the prize.

       The Greatest Challenge in the World          

Have you ever thought about the greatest challenge in the world? Is it world hunger, literacy, stamping out diseases or ending all wars? Read how John Piper answers this thought-provoking question.                                     
Guest Blogger: John Piper is founder and teacher of desiringGod.org  and chancellor of Bethlehem College & Seminary. Precept Ministries is honored to have John as one of our Guest Bloggers.
 

Never, never, never forget that Jesus commanded us to make disciples of all the peoples on this planet — the whole planet (Matthew 28:19-20). This is the greatest challenge in the world.

Let the emphasis fall on “all the peoples” — Greek, panta ta ethne (all ethnic groups in the world). Jesus bought men “from every tribe and language and people and nation” (Revelation 5:9). Not some, but every.

The Two Most Important Marks of a True Disciple

There seems to be a lot of confusion among believers today about what characterizes a true disciple of Christ. However, the world has a pretty good idea of what a true disciple should be like and they are quick to point out the shortcomings of “Christians” they know.

It’s a sobering thought to know the people around you are looking for proof of your relationship to Christ. How does your walk hold up under the scrutiny of those closest to you? Do you bear the marks of a true disciple in such a way as to be recognizable to those you come in contact with day after day?

The Two Most Important Marks of All

Centuries ago, the experts in Jewish law took the Ten Commandments and over time expanded them into 613 laws. Jesus, however, took the Ten Commandments and summed them up into two: love God and love people.

Who is Isis?

For many of us, ISIS came screaming into our consciousness only after they captured Mosul, the second largest city in Iraq. Suddenly we were confronted with a terrorist group that acted like an army. Their atrocities were demonic, beyond comprehension. As their brutal persecution of minorities and Christians caught my attention, I wondered who are these people and where did they come from?
