Have you ever had to sacrifice your reputation, or personal safety to serve others? We may never be in a situation where we’re compelled to physically give our lives for another person. So how do we lay down our lives for the brethren?

The minute we come to Christ we become a threat and whether we acknowledge it or not, we are on the front lines of the most dangerous battle we will ever know.
Biblical illiteracy leads to confusion, conflict, and compromise that undermines what it means to be a disciple of Christ. So is teaching really foundational to discipleship?
While there is no discipleship strategy provided in Scripture, the Lord did model components of discipleship that every believer can apply.
