The Heart of Discipleship and Gospel Proclamation

The heart of discipleship and gospel ministry is the heart!  What or who do we love most of all?  Gospel proclamation and life are intimately connected.  Our task is to spread the message of the gospel to all people.  But if our hearts are not poured out as a drink offering to Jesus in love, how will the gospel be spread abroad?  Love for this world and its idols will betray the message that glories in the person and work of Jesus Christ.  Love for this world and its lusts will betray the message of a God who showed his love in the self-giving love of his Son.  Love for this world and its passing pleasures and treasures will betray the message of immortality and life eternal found only in Jesus Christ, whom we love.
