Life on life.

March 30, 2010

You can’t teach someone to follow everything that God has commanded without investing your life in that person.  Discipling can’t be done superficially.
(John MacArthur, The Master’s Plan for the Church, p. 132)

So, being affectionately desirous of you, we were ready to share with you not only the gospel of God but also our own selves, because you had become very dear to us.
(1 Thessalonians 2:8)

And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we have seen His glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth.
(John 1:14)

    Cass, how would we phrase that kind of ministry? Avatar on avatar? Virtual life on virtual life? :]

    court, the phrase from one of the speakers’ prayers from WDW2008 keeps coming to mind; she prayed we’d be women who lay down our lives for our sisters. that prayer has been “haunting” me since. let’s do that ❤

    I heard Andy Stanley describe it well one time:

    “Live it out. Then, lay it out.”

    You can’t even go to the later without solid and genuine investment in the former. It’s what Jesus certainly did. Thanks!
