Disciple Toolbox Testimony
25 December 2020
The birth of this website began around the December 1999 timeframe. The Lord knows the plans (and choices) we will make in our lives! Jeremiah 29:11
The Lord will work all these things together for our good, always! We can believe and trust God’s promises for our lives. Our life roadmap becomes the Bible: The Word of God.
Why Life? The creator of the universe decided before time the Way, the Truth and the Life that would become our LIFE! John 14:6
How do we know Truth? God will show you in a personal way, always! One Way: creation presented to us, right in front of us! A second Way: Jesus came to be the firstborn called the Son of God and the Son of Man. Jesus being the only perfect person and first person to be perfect among mankind who died and was buried and rose again for the sins of all mankind: Men and Women. A third Way: Jesus becomes our Life! We know this by the Exchanged Life given to us in Jesus: Galatians 2:20. And it is God who establishes us in Christ, and has anointed us and given us his Spirit in our hearts as a guarantee. 2 Corinthians 1:21-23
What is our purpose here? Do all things to the Glory of God! Remember the Goal: 1 Corinthians 10:31. God is Love and God’s love never ends and love continues forever! A foundational promise of God. We will have Eternal Life. 1 John 4:8
What are we called to be doing? God again made this very clear: Make Disciples. Mathew 28:19-20
What is the starting point? Birth. We have a physical birth and God promises another Birth called a spiritual Birth. God created everyone with a Free Will. God gave all mankind Freedom to make their own choices in life. This Free Will generates two paths in life: our own path or the path that leads home: to what the Bible calls Heaven or Eternal Life in Christ. You get to decide the path you follow! John 3:3
This Freedom equates to Love produced by God (fruit of the Spirit) and from God for you! John 3:16.
The starting point spiritually speaking is our Adoption into God’s Family called the Church: invisible, Romans 8:12-17. God the Father. God the Son and God the Holy Spirit collectively work together as one. The Word of God says you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you. Acts 1:8
A Disciple becomes part of the Church: visible. Mathew 28:19
Remember the Goal: do all things to the Glory of God! 1 Corinthians 10:31
Two Brother’s in Christ met in December 1999. We did not know the plans God had for us. Both our hearts came to realize that we had one common ministry as the Church: Make Disciples. Ephesians 3:6
The Lord started this website based on a new Birth: a spiritual birth. We began sharing the Word of God / planting seeds and one of the seeds began to grow in a human heart and we began to embrace Mathew 28:19 and facilitated a Bible Study from that seed: new spiritual birth! Mathew 18-20
Today: the Lord has shown us a Way to go forward: John 14:6
This website will be our Testimony and living document as to what the Lord shows us as we Go and Make Disciples and the Lord moves us forward (to maturity) in our Faith in Jesus Christ and all of God’s promises: Jesus the Christ (Messiah) will continue to build His Church: the King’s Way! We know and believe (trust) from the Word of God that the Lord gave us the Ministry of Reconciliation and entrusted us with the Message of Reconciliation. 2 Corinthians 5:16-21
I can do all things through him who strengthens me. Philippians 4:23.
Thank you to an amazing wife who reminds me everyday and encourages me everyday in the Lord! This same verse came to me from my oldest daughter as the Lord brought all things together in my life! John 14:6, my life verse! The Lord knows the plans he has for me! I am slow to learn and sometimes (many times) sin along the way. Thank you Lord for your Exchanged Life (Death, Burial, Resurrection) and forgiveness of my sins based on your Finished work on the cross: Your final words Lord: It is finished! John 19:30
In Jesus name,
