Do You Want to be a Disciple?


He answered them, “I have told you already, and you would not listen. Why do you want to hear it again? Do you also want to become his disciples?”                       John 9:27 NKJV

Discipleship is by faith and it is also our own personal choice. In the words of Tim Allen from the film The Santa Clause “What if I choose, not to believe?” God calls, He appeals to us and ultimately Jesus gave His life for us to become His children, but He is not in the kidnapping business!

 

In many ways the blind man in John chapter nine is just like us. Because of his disability his only option was to be dependent on the kindness of strangers.

My wife and I serve as members of a worship team at a multicultural church. Our members are from Brazil, Nepal and the U.S.. Because of the many languages and cultures in our local body we face unique challenges, such as how many songs will we do in English today? What new songs can we use in either language that are simple enough for the people to sing. The songs, the devotions and insights here are a small portion of some of the ways God is leading us as we push towards the goal. I pray that these will be both a blessing and an encouragement for those of you who may pass by Praise 2 Worship.
