The Great Omission: Reclaiming Jesus’s Essential Teachings on Discipleship

#ad
#ad
HarperOne #ad - The disciple of jesus is not the deluxe or heavy-duty model of the Christian -- especially padded, textured, streamlined, and empowered for the fast lane on the straight and narrow way. The last command jesus gave the church before he ascended to heaven was the Great Commission, the call for Christians to "make disciples of all the nations.

But christians have responded by making "Christians, " not "disciples. This, according to brilliant scholar and renowned Christian thinker Dallas Willard, has been the church's Great Omission. The word disciple occurs 269 times in the New Testament, " writes Willard. Christian is found three times and was first introduced to refer precisely to disciples of Jesus.

The Great Omission: Reclaiming Jesus’s Essential Teachings on Discipleship #ad - . Willard shows us that in the school of life, we are apprentices of the Teacher whose brilliance encourages us to rise above traditional church understanding and embrace the true meaning of discipleship -- an active, concrete, 24/7 life with Jesus. But the point is not merely verbal. All of the assurances and benefits offered to humankind in the gospel evidently presuppose such a life and do not make realistic sense apart from it.

He calls on believers to restore what should be the heart of Christianity -- being active disciples of Jesus Christ. The new testament is a book about disciples, by disciples, and for disciples of Jesus Christ.
