Endurance Disciple

If you’ve been reading our past few Aid Stations, and I hope you have, perhaps you have noticed an increased emphasis on making disciples.  This has been intentional as we desire to focus your attention on both FCA Endurance’s mission and ultimately Jesus’ command to His apostles (and all believers who would follow them) in Matthew 28:19-20, “Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe everything I have commanded you. And remember, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”

As we consider our mission, I wanted to briefly explore what “disciple” means.  A simple definition would be: a pupil, learner, student, and follower of a certain teacher.  This certainly makes sense in the verses above, “teaching them to observe everything I have commanded you.”  As Jesus used this word, He described those who would answer His invitation to, “Follow me” (Luke 9:59 and many other places).  Disciples are those who respond to the Holy Spirit’s prompting, recognize their need for the forgiveness of their sins, and respond through humble repentance and complete trust in Jesus sacrifice for their sins.  They are filled by the Holy Spirit and begin joyfully  following Jesus as an appropriate act of loving thanksgiving for their salvation and restored relationship with God. 

In essence, a disciple is a Biblical follower of Jesus Christ, a true believer (vs. James 2:19) who is filled with the Holy Spirit, longing to become more like Jesus daily.  It is certainly a process, sometimes slow, often filled with trials and opportunities for growth.  However, there is a loving, steadfast desire to follow Jesus, even when it’s hard (Luke 9:23).  Also, as mentioned above, followers of Jesus (disciples) make disciples.  This is God’s design to save the world… His Spirit moving through the witness of His people (Acts 1:8).   That’s what we’re all about!

“But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come on you, and you will be My witnesses in Jerusalem, in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”  Acts 1:8
