My job as a discipler is to teach the student how to think as a believer before God, to train them to have a sound relationship with the God of the Scriptures.
Soundness expressed with creativity is a powerful expression.
While you have the light, trust to the light, that you may become men of light. — John 12:36

In 1981, not long after becoming one of our Bible Study leaders, Billy asked me to spend time with him on a regular basis. We started meeting often on Tuesday nights. Billy would drive, and I would ride along as he stopped to meet with and help people in their homes. I watched, and occasionally spoke up, as Billy lived out his faith in Jesus before others and me. I honestly do not remember a single Bible verse or Bible study Billy and I discussed. But, I do remember his heart for the Lord and people. By Billy’s example I saw some of the Lord’s potential within me as well. In hindsight, I needed someone like Billy to show me I was underselling Jesus. 

I had little vision for my life. I hardly even knew myself. Billy helped me discover so much about the Lord ‘s ways. Through time in relationship with the Lord, He used Billy to show me a way to embrace the freedom to discover my unique expression in Christ. Thanks to the God in men like Billy, I have given my time weekly to train believers in freely connecting faith to life since 1987.

Error and Rebellion

Error is a mistake. We all have mistakes in our thinking and expression. As believers reason together by the Spirit, our errors can be corrected. Rebellion is when believers know our mistake, and we continue in it. Rebellion is common in Christendom today. We’ve bought the lie that to live righteously is to swim at the shallow end of the pool. When speaking of His Second Coming to this earth, Jesus asked, “However, when the Son of Man comes, will He find the faith on the earth?” Luke 18:8. Jesus saw our day, when sound faith in Him alone would be hard to find.
