Key Ideas

  • It’s not enough to think about discipleship in a timeless sense. We must work out what it means to follow Jesus in the particular time and setting that we’ve been placed.
  • Developing general habits is good, but we must also develop subversive habits that confront the particular temptations and challenges we’re going to face as Christians today.
  • Expressive individualism is one of the key evangelistic and discipleship issues we must face today.
  • Discipleship resources are good but must be complemented with relationships that show what it means to follow Jesus in real life.
  • One of the big battlegrounds for us in our generation is going to be over anthropology: what it means to be human.

Quotes

“We’ve got to have wisdom to know what faithfulness looks like at this moment.”

“The gospel is timeless, but we must work out what it means to follow Jesus in the particular time and setting that we’ve been placed.”

“Discipleship is caught as much as it is taught. There is certainly a teaching element to it, but there also is modeling and an invitation model to it.”
