To Be a Disciple 2 by MDommel Comment (0)

In the first part of this post I wrote that “we are to follow Jesus — be His disciples — in the same way that we are to love Him — as Jesus says in Mark 12:30 ‘with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength.’”

And, “that it is possible to become this type of disciple — this type of Christ-follower — but not without help. We cannot become this without help.”

From Friction to Fame by MDommel Comment (0)

Proverbs 27:17
As iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another.

As I was sitting in church this morning I began rubbing the palms of my hand against my jeans. I noticed that the longer I did this the warmer my hands and my legs became. The rubbing was causing a friction that was generating warmth.

Hidden Truth Assumed Truth by MDommel Comment (0)

A.W. Tozer in The Pursuit of God states “In all Christian teaching certain basic truths are found, hidden at times, and rather assumed than asserted, but necessary to all truth as the primary colors are found in and necessary to the finished painting. Such a truth is the divine immanence.”

Christ commands us in Matthew 28:16-20

“go and make disciples of all nations” — The “hidden and assumed truth” here would be that in order make disciples — you must already be a disciple.

“teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you” — The “hidden and assumed truth” here would be that in order to teach all that Jesus commanded — you must first know and understand all that He commanded.


One more thing — we are responsible to God for how we teach, who we teach and what we teach.

Not many of you should presume to be teachers, my brothers, because you know that we who teach will be judged more strictly {James 3:2}.
