Dear Discipleship-first Friends,
The United States is in the midst of big change. First, it was COVID-19 and all the changes around which everyone had to adopt. Then, it was economic shock. And now it has moved to public protests, demonstrations and civil unrest.
Now, it has moved even further with changes in police departments, sponsorships, corporations, and many public institutions.
What are disciples and disciple makers to do in such times?
Natasha Crain recently published a very helpful post entitled, “5 Ways Christians are Getting Swept into a Secular Worldview in This Cultural Moment.” As she points out, many people around us are jumping on a bandwagon of some kind, and the dominant bandwagon is not rooted in values consistent with a biblical worldview.
As I pointed out in my blog on this topic last week (click here), we must be aware of the cultural moment in which we are living and realize that we must do what the apostle Paul described in 2 Corinthians 10:5—and take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.
But how do we do that?
I would like to recommend 12 key resources that can help guide us as disciples and disciple makers of Jesus.
For King Jesus,
