Raising The Bar


Welcome to the Discipleship Minute. I’m Maurice Smith.“True religion,” wrote A. W. Tozer, “confronts earth with heaven and brings eternity to bear upon time.” The same can be said of true discipleship. True discipleship confronts each of us with the reality of the Kingdom of God, and brings the demands of that Kingdom to bear on our daily lives. Jesus set a high bar for anyone answering His call to discipleship, and He refused to lower that bar for those unwilling to accept the challenge. With Jesus, discipleship became more challenging, and the lessons got harder, not easier. To help you answer God’s call to discipleship in 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.
