Whom Should You Disciple?

Whom Should You Disciple?

Once you have a good idea about the product and process of disciple-making (see more about this in Week Three of Invest in a Few), it’s time to get down to the practice of making disciples. How do you make a disciple? Where do you begin? You may have never invested your life in another person. […]

One Big Question

I want you to imagine that you are sitting in a group and I am speaking. Now, imagine that I’m holding an apple in my hand…a red, clean, crisp apple. As I hold it up and everyone is looking I ask, “How many apples am I holding?” Faces stare with a matter-of-fact look, wondering why […]

Doing the Work

Are you doing the work?

It was late in Jesus’ ministry. He knew that His time on earth was coming to a close. Jesus turned to His disciples and stated plainly, “We must work the works of him who sent me while it is still day, night is coming when no one can work,” (John 9.4 ESV). The work Jesus […]

It’s Time to Pivot in Discipleship

Dietrich Bonhoeffer grew up in an upper-middle-class German family of doctors and scientists. So when he told his parents that he wanted to study theology, they were not that excited. Dietrich later became one of the world’s foremost theologians and thinkers of the 20th century. He is not remembered as much for his public sermons […]

The Model of Jesus

Let’s go back up to the mountain in Galilee. Jesus is casting His global vision to His disciples. He said, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy […]
