Why is There a discipleheart.org?
The call to be Jesus’s disciple may have been forgotten or misunderstood, but it’s never lost its significance. It turns out it isn’t about wearing your Sunday best (or sandals), adding some spiritual steps to your routine, memorizing the do’s and don’ts, or learning a religious formula.
Step outside contemporary culture for a minute and go upstream to Jesus’s own words in the Gospels. When he said, “Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations,…” he was addressing his disciples. (Matthew 28:19a NKJV) This is not the first thing he said about it.
Before you answer the call to go and make disciples Jesus expects you to answer the call to be his disciple. Here it is: ‘Then Jesus said to those Jews who believed Him, “If you abide in My word, you are My disciples indeed.” (John 8:31 NKJV)
It is therefore required to find out how to be his disciple, and then how to make disciples. Once you’re born again they occur simultaneously (being one and making one), but the first takes priority because it’s more essential:
- You’re my disciple if you abide in my Word
- Now, go and make disciples
Jesus said these things to his disciples as a group. However, we won’t answer as a group at the judgment, but rather individually. Therefore, we prefer to talk to just you, not the group.
discipleheart.org exists to help you answer the greatest call. Some people tune in to this call while others hear it dimly; still others don’t hear it at all. Truly, in all times and places, Jesus calls people to follow him and be his disciple. This is your generation. This is your place. Answer him with a “Yes, I want to be your disciple; show me how,” because of who he is and what he’s done for you.
As a disciple of Jesus Christ, it is crucial for you to under God-ordained leaders where the word of God is believed and taught unashamedly. discipleheart.org is neither a local church nor an online church. Ask God to guide you to a local church here on earth, your home away from home.
We’ll explore in order the three values of disciples:
- the primacy of his word, his truth
- the connecting power of his love
- the importance of servanthood
You will function in your imperfections because of not yet mastering the use of your soul, nor has anyone else. Everyone has room to grow. However, when you received Christ you became perfect in the sense of being alive. (“We were dead in trespasses and sins…”) You don’t grow into becoming a disciple. You grow by being his disciple. There are no failures here, just learners.
