The bible is not silent on the kind of believer / Jesus lover / Jesus Follower we need to disciple. As we engage ever deeper into the last of the last days, we need to be ever more intentional in our believer instruction. There are many ways to approach this matter. These few blogs simply want to empower you to have the conversation to reach your own conclusions.
What kind of world are you preparing your believers to face?
What kind of challenges will they need to show courage?
What kind of enemy engagements will they encounter?
What are the essential weapons they will need in their arsenal?
What scripture / theology will be vital for their journey?
How will they handle the relational pressures that will seek to isolate them?
How will they need to deal with fear and the threat of the "love of many will grow cold"?
How can they keep their call tom leadership even though leadership will be increasingly disrespected and dishonored?
How will they handle persecution when it comes — overtly or subtly?
These are a few key questions that need to be asked and an intentional response designed.
