Columns from Tabletalk Magazine, June 2018
The June issue of Tabletalk explores the biblical teaching on discipleship. During the earthly ministry of Jesus, He called twelve men to be Apostles, but He called many more men and women to be disciples. Indeed, Christ has continued to call disciples ever since. Every Christian is, in fact, a disciple—one called to learn at the feet of Jesus and to do what He commands. Today, however, there is much neglect of the process of Christian discipleship, with the result that it is hard for many people to understand what discipleship involves and what a faithful disciple of Jesus looks like. This issue looks at what discipleship entails and at the behavior of Christian disciples that we may grow in faithfulness to our Lord and in making disciples of all nations.
