Pleasing God, Making Disciples of Jesus Christ



Luke 14:27 – Whoever does not bear his own cross and come after me cannot be my disciple.

Here you will find activities and information that promotes growth in our personal relationship with Jesus Christ and our journey of discipleship.

The Christian Life In One Verse

Galatians 2:20 – I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me. THEME OF THE DAY. THE CHRISTIAN LIFE IN ONE VERSE. Count how many times…

Three Realities In The Christian Life

John 16:33 – I have said these things to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world, you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world.” THEME OF THE DAY.

I have never read the Bible; never attended a church; and never met a Christian until I met you. This is not far-fetched, it is very close to reality.

In one sentence, how would you describe the Apostle Paul based exclusively on today’s scripture (Philippians 3:7-11)?

When Jesus Christ reveals Himself and enters into the life of a person, two words tell us what happens – “radically changed.”

No. It was slow, tedious, and each drill built upon each other.
