Whatever Happened to Discipleship?

Things are forgotten.  Priorities are rearranged.  Important concepts of faith are slowly ignored.

Discipleship is largely forgotten in much of the church in the western world.  That needs to be noted and corrected.  Don’t get me wrong.  I’m not against evangelism or worship or ministry- far from it.  But discipleship is too important to be ignored.  It is too major to become a minor.

This is a plea for discipleship in the lives of our churches and individual hearts.  Those of us who follow Jesus with our lips need to remember to follow Him with our lives.  Discipleship matters.

Let me encourage those of you who know Christ as Savior to take some healthy steps towards discipleship.  Spend time each day with the Lord in prayer and bible reading.  Obey the things you know the Lord wants you to do or to change.

Let’s elevate discipleship again.  Let’s recognize that Jesus calls us to follow Him and then let’s do it.

Rediscover discipleship.
