489 – Many Christian Men Don’t Have The Whole Story
America is overwhelmingly born again–around 40%. Every surrendered Christian finds that bewildering. How is it possible that so many believe when so much is wrong?
The Bible explains. The marching orders of Jesus are to “make disciples.” But a disciple is so much more than born again.
There are three biblical parts to a disciple: A disciple is called to live “in Christ” (conversion), equipped to live “like Christ” (discipleship), and sent to live “for Christ” (calling).
Until you have not only a “conversion” story, but also a “discipleship” story and a “calling” story you don’t have the “whole” story. And that’s why so many Christian men are stuck on first.
