According to the Book of Acts, at first people were added to their numbers and then greatly multiplied. Learning to become such a disciple is vital to the future of the church. Giving definition to discipleship is a great start. Be committed! It’s a cause worth living for. It’s a cause worth dying for.
What were the secrets behind the tremendous growth of the church. Today we will examine the underlying principles that influenced the formation of the early church.
Fresh out of the gate on the day of Pentecost, the new believers were radical, committed, conscientious, and passionate. According to the Book of Acts, at first people were added to their numbers and then greatly multiplied. Their reputation for zealous reproduction of disciples earned them a reputation for turning their world upside down. Outsiders called them Christians meaning “Little Christs”. God wants more than belief and worship in church. He wants faith and love in action outside of the church. These early radicals were committed! It was a cause worth living for and it was a cause worth dying for, so these disciples became great disciple makers.
