Am I ignitable? A disciple can be forgiven if he does not have great mental ability or physical prowess. But he cannot be excused if he does not have seal. If his heart is not aflame with a red-hot passion for the Savior, he stands condemned. After all, Christians are followers of the One who says, “Zeal for Your house has eaten me up” (John 2:17). Their Savior was consumed with a passion for God and His interests. Those who are constrained by the love of Christ will count no sacrifice too great to make for Him.
This book is an attempt to highlight some principles of New Testament discipleship. Some of us have seen these principles in the Word for years, but somehow concluded that they were too extreme and impractical for the complicated age in which we live. And so we surrendered to the chill of our spiritual environment.
Then we meta group of young believers who set out to demonstrate that the Savior’s terms of discipleship are not only highly practical but that they are the only terms which will ever result in the evangelization of the world.
We acknowledge our indebtedness to these young people for providing living examples of many of the truths emphasized here.
To the extent that these truths are still beyond our own personal experience, we present them as the aspirations of our heart.
For over fifty-eight years, William MacDonald addressed the key issues of Christianity in clear and simple terms. Leaving a promising business career for the Lord Jesus, he has traveled worldwide, proclaiming the unsearchable riches of Christ. His more than eighty works are characterized by an economy of words that only comes by a major time investment in the Word. Although William MacDonald went to be with the Lord in 2008, his writing ministry continues to instruct and teach thousands of people today.
