    Discipleship and mentoring are two vital ministries needed both inside and outside the church. Both can be life changing and seem rather synonymous with each other, however, there are differences that are needed to be understood between the two. Plainly stated, disciples devote themselves to the precepts of Christ and possess both passive personal and active social qualities (Sanders, 1994). A disciple appreciates the heavy, personal toll of discipleship, and with a humble spirit, is willing to suffer and surrender their lives to Christ at any cost (Sanders, 1994), including laying down one’s own life. In many churches, the concept of discipleship is skewed by the desire to fill seats throughout the congregation, and as a result, no lasting transformations can be realized in the believer (Hull, 2004). Discipleship is considered by many in…

    Every disciple of Christ is called to grab the baton of the Great Commission, and run with it. It is definite that Jesus’s disciples should live with the Mission of God attached to their lives; because it is God’s command to go into all the world and make disciples. Let 's begin; the mantle of the Great Commission in the Gospel of Matthew is in chapter 28 verse 18, which says, “Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me.” A word that should…

In the opening scene, as Jesus and the disciples are on their way to Caesarea Philippi, the reader sees that even while in route to their destination their work never ends as they grapple with the questions that Jesus asks. It seems that Mark desires to make it clear that in the eyes of Jesus, the disciples are set apart from the masses in the…

    In that view, the church replaces — or as they would say — “fulfills” — Israel. There is no further national program for Israel nor is there a future earthly kingdom lasting for 1000 years with Christ ruling from Jerusalem. This millennial (which means 1000 years) view is called Amillennialism (meaning: no literal millennium).

    Daniel’s 70 weeks lay out God’s plan for the nation, Israel (see Daniel 9:24-27). According to most scholars within both the Dispensational and Covenantal camps, the Messiah (Jesus) is cut off (crucified) after the 7 and 62 (7+62=69) weeks. These are weeks of years, not days. Dispensationalists teach a parenthesis (2000-year gap) between the 69th and 70th week, which becomes the church age of grace, essentially starting from Christ’s resurrection and extending all the way until the rapture of…

    In the beginning it had only a local significance, only the princes of Lu and the disciples offering sacrifices at certain times of the year. That is until the first emperor of Han passed through the country of Lu in 195 CE and sacrificed at the tomb of the sage. This action marks the beginnings of national worship of Confucius.

    more unified or chaotic Bach highlights the calamity or confusion that is happening; third, at the end of the work Bach descends into deeper, darker music that, even without the vocal accompaniment, conveys the gravity of what has just happened. However, throughout his piece, Bach does periodically include bright movements that give the listener a sense of hope. And this glimmer of hope is fulfilled at the end of the masterpiece.
