The Good Stuff (13/8)

Every week I’ll try to share some articles, blogs, images that I’ve found interesting or inspiring – the good stuff! The aim is to learn and promote learning – yet not forgetting the fun in the process! 🙂

Are You Needed In Your Church? – Very good blog I love reading. This is an especially needed-to-be-written article especially to the next generation. She asks a very pertinent question we should ask ourselves,“I think ultimately it comes down to this: Are we serving for the benefit of the Body, or for our own self-fulfillment?”

3 Steps To Develop A Culture Of Service – MIssional is the buzz word in protestant evangelical churches now a days. Ed Stetzer begins a series of articles addressing the transition into being a missional church and he talks about service. Good read for leaders especially.

Better Discipleship – Are you into discipleship? Then you have to read this. I’m convicted to change how I disciple others. Ed Stetzer shares 5 ways to fix discipleship (if you’re doing it wrong).

10 Secrets Of Highly Successful Couples – I’d recommend this article for single and married people alike. My personal belief is in the biblical complementary roles of husband and wife in marriage, and thru many teachings and courses I’ve attended have come to know some of these principles here as true. Nevertheless, the most important thing is to apply them.

You have probably seen this video around, but if you haven’t and have heard of a man named Steve Jobs, you might like this.

 

Go and Make Disciples.

I have a few books on discipleship that are just waiting on my shelf, ready to be digested and applied. It is Edmund Chan who said,”Truth doesn’t change lives, it is truth applied that changes lives”. To the best of my knowledge, these books give a good starting point, and as I read them I will share my thoughts, comments, ideas – and hopefully you will share yours too.

The blog posts I intend to write are my best attempt at reducing the truth or principles which the author intends to convey into a bite-sized pieces. Should I succeed, God willing, they will be a useful guide to anyone intending to launch little pockets of “intentional disciple-making groups” within your churches and Christian fellowships.

The vision: To obey our Lord who said “Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you.” (Matt 28:19-20, ESV)

Lord Jesus, we come in submission to your command and pray that by your grace we may disciple others into your Kingdom!
