This is my first venture into writing a blog...therefore, The Genesis... As I consider our beginning, I think of our 'life beginning' our birth. As a newborn, I had no clue about life would spend many years dependent on the one who was responsible to nurture and raise me... The gospel of salvation through Jesus Christ somewhere lost its effect when its success was determined by numbers of converts rather than the power of God revealed through discipleship...In Matthew 28:18-20 commissions us as believers to go and make disciples. I'm not sure how that got perverted into the hyper-grace watered down thing that is being done throughout America. Making disciples is the activity that the Church undertakes to 'teach them all things I have commanded you'. Therefore, the Church should be identified by its evangelistic activity and its discipleship making!
