MADE FOR MORE: Being Disciples. Making Disciples.
By Kent Ingle & Steve Saccone
One of the greatest issues facing the church today is whether those who identify as “Christians” will become genuine disciples of Christ. Within this context, a troubling trend emerges where a considerable number of individuals who profess Christianity remain swayed by conviction, yet fail to fully commit themselves to the person, the teachings and the mission of Jesus Christ.
True disciples, on the other hand, are devoted to knowing the person of Jesus, embodying the teachings of Jesus, and aligning their priorities, passions, and pursuits around the mission of Jesus.
Made for More takes its readers on a journey that begins by re-entering the discipleship culture of the first century. It will then guide you into discovering God’s dreams and designs for living–as God created you to live. Jesus doesn’t simply invite you to believe in him; he extends an invitation to follow him as an apprentice, a student, and practitioner all in pursuit of personal transformation while simultaneously catalyzing transformative change in the world around you.
Made For More is a six-week guide that presents a carefully curated sequence of daily readings, journaling prompts, and thought-provoking questions. These elements are designed to cultivate the values, methodologies, and dialogues essential for nurturing a vibrant disciple-making culture.
Dive into this resource on your own, with a friend, as a ministry team, or with your community group. God will use it to shape you personally, as well as others in your life, to become vital disciples of Jesus who make more disciples.
