    Courage is not something that you already have that makes you brave when the tough times start. Courage is what you earn when you’ve been through the tough times and you discover they aren’t so tough after all.
    Note: Courage is earned in adversity.
  • Mifflin shared from Jesus: A Theography by Leonard Sweet, Frank Viola
    IN FIRST-CENTURY PALESTINE, THE WORD DISCIPLE DIDN’T MEAN what it means today. It did not refer to a pupil in school who learned from notebook to notebook via a credentialed teacher. Rather, it meant apprentice. A disciple was someone who learned a skill or way of life from a teacher. With respect to Jesus, a disciple was a follower—not just of a set of teachings but of an entire way of living.

    if you read Scripture in a way that doesn’t point to Christ, you don’t have Christianity; you have a religion.
    Note: All Scripture points to Christ.

  • Mifflin shared from Launching Missional Communities by Mike Breen, Alex Absalom
    As has been humorously put, when we become Christians, there are two things we can do on earth that we won’t be able to do in heaven: sin and witness. The question for us is to decide which one we think Jesus left us here to do.
    Note: So true!
