Making Disciples Quotes By Dean C.Curry

What is the Christian's responsibility to this world? Is the Christian's responsibility simply, as the "Great Commission" suggests, to share the Good News of God's Kingdom to others, with the goal of making disciples of all nations and perhaps also, along the way, through acts of charity to help meet the material needs of human beings? In other words, is this the only justification for Christian engagement of the larger world? — Dean C.Curry

Making Disciples Quotes By Iain M. Duguid

Her power is seen in the fact that the good news of Coca Cola is more widely proclaimed than the good news of Jesus Christ. Consumerism is making disciples in all nations through its seductive charms. — Iain M. Duguid

Making Disciples Quotes By Elisabeth Elliot

Making Disciples Quotes By Kevin DeYoung

My fear is that of all the choices people face today, the one they rarely consider is, "How can I serve most effectively and fruitfully in the local church?" I wonder if the abundance of opportunities to explore today is doing less to help make well-rounded disciples of Christ and more to help Christians avoid long term responsibility and have less long-term impact. — Kevin DeYoung

Making Disciples Quotes By John Paul Warren

We have created a culture of leadership "development" in the Church at the expense of ignore the ministry of the Church to making disciples. — John Paul Warren

Making Disciples Quotes By Darren N. Huckey

One of the largest obstacles to discipleship is that too many people think of it as being an optional component of faith. We tend to relegate discipleship to the clergy or to someone with a special mission. The fact is, however, that if we call ourselves by the name of Jesus, we should be a disciple ourselves and should be making disciples of others. — Darren N. Huckey

Making Disciples Quotes By Dallas Willard

Every church needs to be able to answer two questions. First, what is our plan for making disciples? And second, does our plan work? — Dallas Willard

Making Disciples Quotes By Brandon Cox

Making Disciples Quotes By Pope Francis

We are not Christian "part-time," only at certain moments, in certain circumstances, in certain decisions; no one can be Christian in this way. We are Christian all the time! Totally! May Christ's truth, which the Holy Spirit teaches us and gives to us, always and totally affect our daily life. Let us call on him more often so that he may guide us on the path of disciples of Christ. Let us call on him every day. I am making this suggestion to you: let us invoke the Holy Spirit every day; in this way the Holy Spirit will bring us close to Jesus Christ. — Pope Francis

Making Disciples Quotes By David Platt

Making disciples is not an easy process. It is trying. It is messy It is slow, tedious, even painful at times. It is all these things because it is relational. Jesus has not given us an effortless step-by-step formula for impacting nations for his glory. He has given us people, and he has said, Live for them. Love them, serve them, and lead them. Lead them to follow me, and lead them to lead others to follow me. In the process you will multiply the gospel to the ends of the earth. — David Platt

Making Disciples Quotes By Jim Putman

You see, the pastor is not making disciples who follow him; he is making disciples who follow Jesus. — Jim Putman

Making Disciples Quotes By Francis Chan

I wonder, then, why the last thing Jesus told us was to go into the world, making disciples of all nations, teaching them to obey all that He commanded? You'll notice that he didn't add, 'But, hey, if that's too much to ask, tell them to just become Christians- you know, the people who get to go to heaven without having to commit to anything'. — Francis Chan

Making Disciples Quotes By C.S. Lewis

If the Church is not Making Disciples, then all the cathedrals, clergy, missions, sermons, even the Bible, are a waste of time. — C.S. Lewis

Making Disciples Quotes By Anonymous

Making disciples requires not only "sharing our faith," but also sharing our lives - failures and successes, disobedience and obedience. — Anonymous

Making Disciples Quotes By Francis Chan

But making disciples is far more than a program. It is the mission of our lives. It defines us. A disciple is a disciple maker. — Francis Chan

Making Disciples Quotes By John R.W. Stott

So the fundamental question before the church is who is Lord? Is the church the lord of Jesus Christ, so that it has liberty to edit and manipulate, accepting what it likes and rejecting what it dislikes? Or is Jesus Christ our Teacher and our Lord, so that we believe and obey his teaching? He still says to us, 'Why do you call me, "Lord, Lord," and do not do what I say?' (Luke 6:46). To confess Jesus as Lord but not obey him is to build our lives on a foundation of sand. Again, 'Whoever has my commands and keeps them is the one who loves me,' he said in the upper room (John 14:21). Here then are two cultures and two value systems, two standards and two lifestyles. On the one side there is the fashion of the world around us; on the other side is the revealed, good and pleasing will of God. Radical disciples have little difficulty in making their choice. — John R.W. Stott

Making Disciples Quotes By Eugene H. Peterson

He continued teaching. "Watch out for the religion scholars. They love to walk around in academic gowns, preening in the radiance of public flattery, basking in prominent positions, sitting at the head table at every church function. And all the time they are exploiting the weak and helpless. The longer their prayers, the worse they get. But they'll pay for it in the end." 41-44 Sitting across from the offering box, he was observing how the crowd tossed money in for the collection. Many of the rich were making large contributions. One poor widow came up and put in two small coins - a measly two cents. Jesus called his disciples over and said, "The truth is that this poor widow gave more to the collection than all the others put together. All the others gave what they'll never miss; she gave extravagantly what she couldn't afford - she gave her all. — Eugene H. Peterson

Making Disciples Quotes By Ed Stetzer

We have to assess: Are we making disciples along the way as we draw people to our churches? — Ed Stetzer

Making Disciples Quotes By Shane Claiborne

In their pursuit of "making disciples of every nation" and baptizing all those within the empire, they stumbled into baptizing the empire itself, thus turning sacrament into sacrilege[ ... ] — Shane Claiborne

Making Disciples Quotes By Gloria Furman

Mothering or nurturing is not just a calling for women who have biological or adopted children. Mothering is a calling for all women. Every Christian woman is called to the spiritual motherhood of making disciples of all nations. — Gloria Furman

Making Disciples Quotes By Rachel Held Evans

Like it or not, following Jesus is a group activity, something we're supposed to do together. We might not always do it within the walls of church or even in an organized religion, but if we are to go about making disciples, confessing our sins, breaking bread, paying attention, and preaching the Word, we're going to need one another. We're going to need each other's help. The — Rachel Held Evans

Making Disciples Quotes By Phillips Brooks

So shall we join the disciples of our Lord, keeping faith in Him in spite of the crucifixion, and making ready, by our loyalty to Him in the days of His darkness, for the time when we shall enter into His triumph in the days of His light. — Phillips Brooks

Making Disciples Quotes By Larry Eskridge

Conversions were easy, but making full-time disciples was hard. — Larry Eskridge

Making Disciples Quotes By David Platt

Making disciples by going, baptizing, and teaching people the Word of Christ and then enabling them to do the same thing in other people's lives - this is the plan God has for each of us to impact nations for the glory of Christ — David Platt

Making Disciples Quotes By John Wimber

Our passion is to imitate the ministry of Jesus in the power of the Spirit. This requires we must follow Jesus out of baptismal waters, through our personal deserts, and into the harvest. We want to take the ammunition of the balanced evangelical theology with the fire power of Pentecostal practice, loading & readying the best of both worlds to hit the target of making & nurturing disciples ... — John Wimber

Making Disciples Quotes By Swami Vivekananda

Sri Ramakrishna is far greater than the disciples understand him to be. He is the embodiment of infinite spiritual ideas capable of development in infinite ways ... One glance of his gracious eyes can create a hundred thousand Vivekanandas at this instant. If he chooses now, instead, to work through me, making me his instrument, I can only bow to his will. — Swami Vivekananda

Making Disciples Quotes By Georges Houssney

To engage Muslims, we must see them as people, not merely as representatives of a foreign religion, culture, or political ideology. As people, they are products of those things, but they are also husbands and wives, children and students, truck drivers and heart surgeons. They are God's lost children too, and he has given us the task of making disciples from among them, teaching them to obey everything that he has commanded. — Georges Houssney

Making Disciples Quotes By Brian D. McLaren

I must add, though, that I don't believe making disciples must equal making adherents to the Christian religion. It may be advisable in many (not all!) circumstances to help people become followers of Jesus and remain within their Buddhist, Hindu, or Jewish contexts. — Brian D. McLaren

Making Disciples Quotes By William Blake

The Devil answer'd: bray a fool in a morter with wheat, yet shall not his folly be beaten out of him; if Jesus Christ is the greatest man, you ought to love him in the greatest degree; now hear how he has given his sanction to the law of ten commandments: did he not mock at the sabbath, and so mock the sabbaths God? murder those who were murder'd because of him? turn away the law from the woman taken in adultery? steal the labor of others to support him? bear false witness when he omitted making a defense before Pilate? covet when he pray'd for his disciples, and when he bid them shake off the dust of their feet against such as refused to lodge them? I tell you, no virtue can exist without breaking these ten commandments; Jesus was all virtue, and acted from impulse, not from rules. — William Blake

Making Disciples Quotes By Praying Medic

Many church leaders don't question the process of making disciples. They lead congregations that meet regularly. They invite non-believers to attend weekend services and occasionally hold community outreach events. They teach the Bible and have small group meetings during the week. The process may have a few more components, but this is a standard model for making disciples. These activities may bring people to God; getting people to make a profession of faith isn't difficult. But — Praying Medic

Making Disciples Quotes By David Platt

Whereas disinfecting Christians involves isolating them and teaching them to be good, discipling Christians involves propelling Christians into the world to risk their lives for the sake of others. Now the world is our focus, and we gauge success in the church not on the hundreds or thousands whom we can get into our buildings but on the hundreds or thousands who are leaving our buildings to take on the world with the disciples they are making — David Platt
