The Missing Link Go and Make Disciples

Go and Make Disciples! This is the command given to His disciples by the Lord Jesus Christ after His ascension. The difference between what the Lord commanded and what the “religious system” does today is like the difference between the words authentic and invented.

Yet we must not confuse His redemption for His approval. Gods redemptive grace is not His approval of spiritual dysfunction.  Many people are abiding in or gather in dysfunction, this is not the kingdom Jesus died for. Our redemption includes the healing/reconfiguration of Adamic brokenness, not the normalization of it “under grace.” God’s great...
