Disciple ?

Has discipleship been some vague concept, something not taught or practiced, something you know you’re supposed to do but don’t know how? This post contains a short video with practical examples of what it means to be a disciple and how to do discipleship.

Faith In Motion

There is a lot of talk about faith in the bible.  Both Jesus and the disciples call people to look to and believe the Gospel (The good news of God’s love and forgiveness through Jesus).  Yet when Jesus commissions his followers, he doesn’t call them to make believers of the world, but disciples.  Yet what is a disciple?

If you arent living the life of a disciple before men then you cant make disciples of men. James1:22 But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only,
