Make Disciples

“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.”
– Matthew 28-19-20a


“Unless evangelism brings converts into the visible body of Christ, it is like assisting at a baby’s birth and then leaving the infant out in the cold alone. The true object of evangelism, in the context of the Great Commission, is discipleship.”
– Chuck Colson

Knowing God

“Thus says the Lord: ‘Let not the wise man boast in his wisdom, let not the mighty man boast in his might, let not the rich man boast in his riches, but let him who boasts boast in this, that he understands and knows me, that I am the Lord who practices steadfast love, justice, and righteousness in the earth. For in these things I delight, declares the Lord.’ “
– Jeremiah 9:23-24


“I want to know God as he truly is…and make him known…to you. I don’t want to know God as I want to know him, as my imagination conceives him. I don’t want to know him as others say they know him. I want to know God as he is. For myself. …as his friend.”

– Anne Graham Lotz

Time to Lighten Up

“You are the light of the world. …let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.”
– Matthew 5:14-16


“The original, initiating Peacemaker died on the cross to give us peace …and he’s been our friend in all of life’s struggles – all so that we could join him in the ministry of reconciliation. Listen to him in the depth of your soul: ‘I believe in you. You are the light of the world.’ ”
– Lloyd Ogilvie
