Replicate Round Up for July 24th, 2015

Replicate Round Up for July 24th, 2015

Replicate-Roundup-v3.1-300x143As we find articles and resources that talk about Disciple-Making, we are going to collect them and publish them each Friday.

What is Discipleship?

Youth worker Mark Matlock shares some principles about how the church can help young people in their path with Jesus.

Is this the missing ingredient in your spiritual life?

Repentance is not a quick “sorry” prayer to Jesus at the start of our discipleship – but an ongoing part of our spiritual life. As Oswald Sanders wrote in his classic My Utmost for His Highest: “The foundation of Christianity is repentance… If you ever cease to understand the value of repentance, you allow yourself to remain in sin. Examine yourself to see if you have forgotten how to be truly repentant.”

How We Can Focus on Spiritual Growth and Transformation

We have become masters at getting “decisions.” Conversion is a powerful event in the life of the believer. It is a great moment. But it isn’t the end of the game. Converting those decisions into disciples must be part of the church’s purpose.
