The persecution against Christians scattered Jewish believers to find safety and protection. But, some used the situation to do the unthinkable - they pivoted away from safety to bring the good news of Jesus to the Gentiles. What resulted was the calling of the disciples as "Christians," the establishment of the first Gentile church, and Antioch becoming the home base of Paul's missions. All because of the pivot.
I Am His Disciple
When we claim that God is our Lord, we become his disciples, followers who intently learn who he is and his mission for his people. We observe his righteous ways and live them out in all areas of our lives. As God's disciples, we are called to make disciples who surrender their lives to Jesus, understand his teachings, and live them out in obedience, to fulfill their calling to also make disciples. Faithful to this calling brings honor and glory to God's name in our city, nation, and to the ends of the earth.
