(This post is the 5th and final blog in a series about the nature of discipleship in our churches today.)
Making disciples is what the Church was made by God to do. In this series I explain why we aren’t doing it well (Read it here) and two things that stand in our way (read about them here—Roadblock #1: the Christian message that is too easy to be good, and Roadblock #2: we have traded acts for facts).
But there is hope! Blog #4 reminds us that the first solution is that we must tell the full story!
Last but not least, here is Solution #2 for helping the Church do a better job of making true disciples of Jesus…
