QUOTES on DISCIPLESHIP


"Only a disciple can make a disciple."

- A. W. Tozer


"Christianity without discipleship is always Christianity without Christ."

- Dietrich Bonhoeffer


"Many Christians have what we might call a "cultural holiness".

They adapt to the character and behavior pattern of Christians

around them. As the Christian culture around them is more or

less holy, so these Christians are more or less holy. But God

has not called us to be like those around us. He has called us

to be like himself. Holiness is nothing less than conformity to

the character of God."
-- Jerry Bridges


"We have suffered from the preaching of cheap grace. Grace is

free, but it is not cheap. People will take anything that is free,

but they are not interested in discipleship. They will take Christ

as Savior but not as Lord."


- Vance Havner


"It is impossible to live the life of a disciple without definite times

of secret prayer."


- Oswald Chambers


"Because God disciplines those He loves, He will take drastic

measures to get our attention if we need to grow up spiritually."


- Crystal McDowell


"Take the words of Jesus and let them become the Supreme

Court of the Gospel to you."

-John G. Lake
