    based on 2 ratings
     | 1,114 views

    How many times I have boastfully said: “Here am I Lord, send me” while thinking to myself, “As long as Your plans do not conflict with my plans..."

    ...someone said to Him, “Lord, I will follow You wherever You go” (Luke 9:57). How many times I have boastfully said: “Here am I Lord, send me” while thinking to myself, “As long as Your plans do not conflict with my plans.” And Jesus reveals me for what I truly am (John 2:25). It is there ...read more

  • What To Look For In A Disciple Maker

    Contributed by Doug Morrell on Dec 24, 2006
     | 1,652 views

    We tend to become what the most important person in our lives thinks we will become. Great coaches bring out the best in us. They are great encouragers (Heb. 3:13) and wherever they go or whatever they place their hands, there is life...

    A disciple-maker is someone whom God brings into your life and whom you intentionally enter into an up-close and personal, life-long relationship with. The purpose of this Holy Spirit inspired relationship is “teaching them to observe all things that Jesus commanded you” (Mth. 28:20). Obedience ...read more

  • Entering God's Rest

     | 1,431 views

    As believers we have entered into His rest by grace (peace with God) AND that we also must make every effort to obtain what God has already provided (peace of God)...

    “Let us, therefore, make every effort to enter that rest, so that no one will fall by following their example of disobedience” (Heb. 4:11). From God’s Word we learn that rest has several meanings: * The seventh day of creation and the weekly Sabbath celebrating it (Gen. 2:2; Heb. 4:4-9) * The ...read more

  • New Year's Revolution

    based on 20 ratings
     | 1,657 views

    What you believe determines what you say and do. Here’s what the Bible says about you...

    As you begin this new year, one of the greatest gifts you can present to God is to believe - truly accept - what He says about you. Jesus resisted the devil by applying God’s Word. When you are attacked, it is the knowledge and use of the Word that allows you to resist temptation. We cannot ...read more

  • Becoming A Champion

    World-class athletes see winning in their mind’s eye. They win the event before it even begins. They see themselves crossing the finish line, overcoming obstacles, fighting the good fight. Likewise, you are in a race, too (1 Cor. 9:24). Here’s how you can

    “Then Jesus was led by the Spirit into the desert to be tempted by the devil.” (Matthew 4:1) World-class athletes see winning in their mind’s eye. They win the event before it even begins. They see themselves crossing the finish line, overcoming obstacles, ...read more

  • The Rejection Test

    Contributed by Doug Morrell on Dec 5, 2005
    based on 6 ratings
     | 1,659 views

    It is completely unnatural, painful and difficult to risk friendships when you are truly about God’s work, but Jesus never flinched in His pursuit of God’s will - in the end you will discover those who are there for the show and those who show Christ-like

    As I was reading in I Peter 4:1-19 from The Message I came across some passages that appear to be very timely: Since Jesus went through everything you’re going through and more, learn to think like him. Think of your sufferings as a weaning from that old sinful habit of always expecting to get ...read more

  • Training For Reigning

    Contributed by Doug Morrell on Dec 5, 2005
    based on 17 ratings
     | 3,751 views

    We are never to feign happiness in pain, but if we are growing in Christ-likeness, we should be demonstrating a more eternal, positive perspective (considering it pure joy), because we are realizing that we are training for reigning.

    Depth of character is realized under pressure. Anyone can be a Christian when things go well, but how do you do when a little pressure, a little pain, a little discomfort, criticism or gossip, a sick child, loss of income, are applied? When your fruit is squeezed, what kind of juice comes forth? We ...read more

  • You Are Accepted

    Contributed by Doug Morrell on Dec 5, 2005
    based on 11 ratings
     | 2,111 views

    The reason we think and many times say such terrible things about others is that we do not truly accept that we are accepted. We are haunted by guilt because we have never accepted and forgiven ourselves.

    Sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me. Or so we have been told. However, the Bible tells us that our words have the power of life and death (Proverbs 18:21). God also tells us that only wholesome talk should come from our mouths and that we should encourage one ...read more

    based on 14 ratings
     | 3,340 views

    Our churches are not making disciples. But that’s not the real problem. The real problem is - we think we are...

    Patrick Morley writes, “What is the greatest problem facing men today? It is the same problem that faces the church and men’s ministries. As a whole, the church is not making disciples. We have a great problem in the church today. An executive in a major denomination said one day, "Our churches are ...read more

  • Relating Or Rebelling: Church Authority

    Contributed by Doug Morrell on Jun 17, 2005
    based on 16 ratings
     | 2,201 views

    Learning to relate in the right way toward God ordained authority is an important part of spiritual maturity. In fact, you cannot walk in the anointing of God, Who is the head of all and from Whom the oil of anointing flows, if you are not submitted...

    “No discipline seems pleasant at the time, but painful. Later on, however, it produces a harvest of righteousness and peace for those who have been trained by it.” (Heb. 12:11) Learning to relate in the right way toward God ordained authority is ...read more

  • Wesley's 3-Strand Discipleship

    Contributed by Doug Morrell on May 18, 2005
    based on 20 ratings
     | 3,200 views

    Founded on Jesus’ blueprint for discipleship, John Wesley developed a simple plan for maturing and equipping the saints. Wesley said, “The Church changes the world not by making converts but by making disciples.”

    “Perhaps the greatest single weakness of the contemporary Christian Church is that millions of supposed members are not really involved at all and, what is worse, do not think it strange that they are not. As soon as we recognize Christ’s intention to make His Church a militant company we ...read more

    God has a prosperous future for His children and each of us are to run the race set before us. The problem is that most of us don’t know or we forget that we’re in a race

    Vince Lombardi once said, “Winning is a habit and so is losing.” God has a prosperous future for His children and each of us are to run the race set before us. The ...read more

     | 1,280 views

    You become a Christian in a moment, but becoming Christ-like is a lifelong journey.

    Oswald Chambers, reflecting on man’s role regarding sanctification, wrote, “Personal holiness is an effect of redemption, not the cause of it.” Twenty years after his conversion, after having founded churches throughout the Mediterranean world, and near the end of his ...read more

  • The Power Of Giving

    Contributed by Doug Morrell on Apr 12, 2005
    based on 24 ratings
     | 7,670 views

    Whether good seed or bad, in season or out, to overcome problems, reach your destiny and potential, become fruitful, to be renewed in mind, body and spirit, we must follow God’s seedtime and harvest principle.

    We excuse ourselves from the great privilege, honor and duty of seeding into the Kingdom of God when we assign to others that which is clearly our responsibility. God founded the principle of seedtime and harvest: "As long as the earth endures, seedtime and harvest, cold ...read more

    Discipleship is the key to effective ministry in the church. Nothing we can do has more potential to change the world than making disciples.

    We are called to make disciples. It is the heart of our Lord’s Commission for His church. Jesus said: ...read more
