The four Gospels present Jesus in action training His disciples. Because Jesus is our ultimate model, here are six particular aspects of the way He made disciples: 1. The Disciples of Jesus were Teachable All those Jesus selected (except Judas) were ordinary, simple, working people. Jesus selected them because they had hearts that were willing to learn. Deep inside they were teachable. Godly leaders are not made with money or education. They are made by transferring values from a godly… Read more

“How Should We Pray?” Dr. KP Yohannan Metropolitan shares vital instruction on how to pray – the steps to true and effective prayer. He admonishes us to live in the atmosphere of prayer, our hearts continually being lifted up in prayer to Him. How to Pray: 1. Pray with absolute confidence that God is on our side When we pray, the devil will bombard us and make us feel sinful and horrible about ourselves. We will never come to the place of… Read more

One of the first things Jesus did when He started His ministry on earth was to choose 12 men to give His time and energy to disciple. He lived with them, laughed with them and taught them day by day through the various situations of life. “Every mature believer must be a disciple maker, aiding in the spiritual growth of those younger in the Lord, for this is the way the Church is built and continues on.”He intentionally invested His… Read more

Bringing the hope of Jesus to the world through “ownership” It is hardworking people that serve the Lord faithfully. But how does one become hardworking? Our flesh simply hates discipline and hard work, and by nature we tend to be lazy and like our rest. But in the work of the Lord, we simply cannot afford to. The work is far too important, because it will have an impact for eternity. What is it, then, that moves us past our… Read more

We pray because…of God Himself, His promises, our joy “God has of His own motion placed Himself under the law of prayer, and has obligated Himself to answer the prayers of men. He has ordained prayer as a means whereby He will do things through men as they pray, which He would not otherwise do. . . If prayer puts God to work on earth, then, by the same token, prayerlessness rules God out of the world’s affairs, and prevents… Read more

In the Gospel of Matthew chapter 25, Jesus spoke about three men to whom He entrusted one with five talents, another with two, and the last man with one. The man with the five talents and the man with two took theirs, worked hard and increased the amount they had originally received. But the man who was given one talent did not take any action; he simply dug a hole in the ground and buried it. Of him Jesus said,… Read more

A day in the life of a farmer starts early and ends late. It’s full of activity, most of which is physical labor—there are cows to milk, fields to plow, machinery to fix. The duties are endless and the day is tiring, but he continues to work day after day. Why? Because he knows that if he works hard, he will see the rewards in the harvest he reaps. That motivation keeps him going. Paul likens the servant of God… Read more

Here are ten specific principles that I have made a priority in my life and service to God that will be helpful to you as you seek to follow the Lord: Principles: 1. Submission All of us are placed under some type of authority. Jesus demonstrated this principle in the way that He submitted His own life to the authority of His Father. In the same way, we must be people of submission, willing to yield our rights and honor… Read more

Why haven’t we yet brought the love of God to the nations? Why are we so ineffective in doing the work of the Lord? The deepest reason is this: We who form the Church—that’s you and me—are not real with God, in our walk with Him and in our obedience to His Word. Unless our hearts change and we become genuine, transparent, open and humble in our faith (and through that, humble in all areas of our lives), we will never… Read more

Prayer has less to do with words and posture and more to do with intimacy and closeness, like a child has with his father or mother. As in prayer, the nearness of God is not determined by space and time, but rather by the inner relationship and intimate fellowship we have with Him in our hearts. Just the other day, I was meeting with a few of my coworkers in the ministry. Before we started to discuss some things we were… Read more
