6. The Cost of Discipleship
Like Jesus, we must be willing to tell people that there is a cost to
following the Savior. We do not help the non-believer if we teach or
imply that Jesus can be folded into the fabric of our lives without the
world hating us. ...
7. Discipleship - Growing In Likeness To Jesus!
In the time of Jesus a disciple would attach himself to a teacher..
learn from him.. obey him.. imitate him.. become like his teacher. That
is what God wants for us. He wants us to be disciples of Jesus.. attach
ourselves to Him.. learn from Him.. become like Him. ...
8. Eight Steps To Become A Servant Leader!
When the New Testament speaks of ministering to the saints, it means not
primarily preaching to them but devoting time, trouble, and substance to
giving them all the practical help possible. The essence of Christian
service is loyalty to the king expressing itself in care for his
servants (Matthew 25: 31-46). Only the Holy Spirit can create in us the
kind of love toward our Savior that will overflow in practical
helpfulness towards his people. ...
9. How to Respond Undaunted When God Calls You
Too often, Christians sense God calling them to do something to help
people in need, yet fail to take action because they're afraid they
won't be able to handle the task. But whenever God calls people to do
something, He empowers them to do it. ...
10. More Will be Demanded From Those Who are Entrusted with Much
Faithful servants are to be about their master's will, not doing their
own thing, not squandering what they've been given, but instead,
realizing how much they've been given, and that there are punishments
awaiting those who knowingly disobey. ...
11. Discipleship - Following Jesus No Matter What
Have you ever wondered why God allows some Christians to suffer so much,
and others seem to glide through life effortlessly, painlessly? I know
many Godly men and women who seem to suffer without end. Their pain is
more than I have ever experienced; they've faced more trials in a year
than I've faced in my entire life. Why is that? ...
12. Closer to You Than to Me - A Surrendered Life
Jonah might be the surrendered saint we most readily identify with. In
the end, he realized it was better to be closer to God than to himself.
He was brought to the surrender ceremony kicking and screaming, with
both heels dug into the sand. He wanted nothing to do with God's terms
of surrender: "Go to Nineveh and preach a message of judgment to the
Ninevites." Thank you, No. Jonah did an about face and hopped the first
ship headed for Spain. You know the rest of the story. ...
13. Dealing With Anger Towards Others
Relationships are rarely shattered because of one incident. Instead,
anger builds over time and eventually explodes all over the place. So if
you have anger in you, don't let it go unchecked. Confess it to others
and make things right today! ...
14. Family: Stop and Listen
During serious conversations or conflicts, you need to stop and listen,
ask questions or paraphrase what your spouse is saying in order to
understand what he or she really means. Asking a good question can often
be like an emotional crowbar to dislodge how somebody really feels. ...
15. Health: Losing Weight Biologically (Without Drugs)
Losing weight by working with biology and your own individual,
genetically encoded insulin triggers is natural and a prescription for
long-term success. It doesn't mean you can eat whatever you want and
never exercise, but it does mean you'll feel full and satisfied and have
lots of energy. ...
