A Radical Yet Realistic Summons

What will our churches and ministries be like if we live out the message that the expectations of discipleship found in the Gospels are expectations for all Christians, not just for a few committed ones?

Jesus wants a church full of disciples who dare to go out into the world to make a difference and to live life the way it was intended to be lived. Yet, as the old hymn goes, “God never gives a call without the enabling.”  As He calls us to discipleship He is right there to lead the way.
