Jesus is a disciple maker. What is His process? This morning we will examine His methods of disciple making. Sermon by Al Gordon from the 3rd of July, 2016.
When we carry out our ‘religious duties’ we are like people digging channels in a waterless land, in order that when at last the water comes it may find them ready… There are happy moments, even now, when a trickle creeps along the dry beds; and happy souls to who this happens often.
C. S. Lewis (1898-1963)
A saint’s life is in the hands of God like a bow and arrow in the hands of an archer. God is aiming at something the saint cannot see, and He stretches and strains, and every now and again the saint says – “I cannot stand anymore.” God does not heed, He goes on stretching till His purpose is in sight, and then He lets fly. Trust yourself in God’s hands.
Oswald Chambers (1874-1917)
“Scripture” is a Biblical concept. We appeal to scripture for information about itself.
J. I. Packer (b. 1928)
The word of cheap grace has been the ruin of more Christians than any commandment of works.
Dietrich Bonhoeffer (1906-1945)
Make disciples of all nations… teach them to do all things that I have commanded you.
Jesus (Matthew 28:19-20)
