Welcome to the Discipleship Minute. I’m Maurice Smith. On the occasion of his 80th birthday, theologian J.I. Packer was asked the pressing need of the church today. “The Church needs to catechize itself,” he replied, “Christians today do not know what they believe.” Packer was right, and nowhere is this more evident than in the issues of discipleship and the Kingdom of God. We’ve lost our sense of the majesty of the Kingdom of God, the grand sweep of God’s plan for the ages, and our own sense of where we fit in God’s plan. To help you understand your role in God’s plan and what it means to be a disciple of the Kingdom, I’ve written a book entitled, And They Dreamt Of A Kingdom: Biblical Studies In Discipleship And The Kingdom of God. You’ll find it on our website at risingrivermedia.org; that’s risingrivermedia.org.
