Make Disciples. Week 07

During the 12 weeks, we are addressing areas on a comprehensive discipleship map.  After discussing each area, we will try to establish Milestones that would provide evidence of personal spiritual growth – markers that we work toward.

Overview

Week 3

During the 12 weeks, we are addressing areas on a comprehensive discipleship map.  After discussing each area, we will try to establish Milestones that would provide evidence of personal spiritual growth – markers that we work toward.  I’ll leave you with a prayer I composed a while back and which I keep at the top of my own prayer list document. 

Father, please use our nothingness to do something for your glory.  Despite our insignificance, do something truly significant.  Use our weakness to show that you are strong.  Use our limitations to show that nothing is too difficult for you.  Bypass our inadequate understanding by showing that you can do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think.  Apply your inexhaustible resources to our seemingly large, but ultimately finite, needs.  Use us to draw attention to your greatness in this inattentive world.  Bring the free gift of eternal life in Christ through us to a world that is lost and dying.  Amen.

Palmer St. Podcast: God’s Plan of Redemption

Some of us have grown accustomed to thinking in terms of “Bible stories” – as in, the Bible is a collection of stories.  That may be true at one level.  At another level it is helpful to think in terms of “the Bible story,” that is, one continuous storyline from Genesis to Revelation.
