Weapons of Mass Discipleship

Aloha, Friend.
Michael and LoriThe Bible is full of military battles in the Old Testament and military analogies in the New Testament. We are definitely in a war, but it isn't the kind of war the world fights. Why else would Jesus tell Peter to put his sword away and heal Malchus' ear in the Garden of Gethsemane? Instead, our weapons are love and the Word of God, which is like a sword. Now, with the explosion of technology, which allows us to transmit the Word of God in written, spoken, and visual formats to multitudes of people all over the world, electronic Scripture publishing is kind of like the exact opposite of a weapon of mass destruction. It is a "weapon" of mass discipleship, bringing the Good News of Jesus Christ to millions of people. Those who hear God's message and believe in Jesus Christ receive salvation and life that is truly worth living. It is awesome to be with you in this move of God. Thank you for your prayers and partnership that make this possible!
