I have no greater joy than this, to hear of my children walking in the truth. (3 John 1:4)
“This is Rob. He just came to Christ two weeks ago.” Charlie, whom I just baptized in chapel service an hour before, introduced him with a big smile. “Really Rob, that’s great! So what has Jesus been doing in your life since then?” I asked. “Oh, I’m going to start reading my Bible to learn more about Him. They told me to start reading the Gospel of Mark.” Charlie and Rob sat down for lunch and I watched them discuss the Wheel Illustration from a couple of tables away. Now that’s pretty cool, but what’s even more exciting is the fact I had been gone from the ministry for 60 days. And Rob’s coming to Christ was a result of 3 generations of men who were in a chain of disciples teaching one another about Jesus. I had become a spiritual great grandpa again. I wholeheartedly agree with the Apostle John, “There is no greater joy!”
Our Calling: To advance the gospel of Jesus and His Kingdom into the nations through spiritual generations of laborers living and discipling among the lost
