Go And Make Disciples

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

As the Sun dipped below the horizon on my first full day in Phnom Penh, a good night’s rest was helpful to begin a new morning (Jet lag is still messing up my sleep cycle).  The first order of business (after making coffee) was reading the Word on my balcony.  I also sang some hymns and got my mind in gear for the day.

The “A” Team* met at my hotel and traveled via Tuk-tuk, to a local coffee shop for breakfast and a Bible study.  We enjoyed our food, and then got into the meat of the Word of God.  I led them through the first 13 verses of Romans 1.  In it, the Apostle Paul underscores the gospel and eight things a Christian should strive for:

  1.  Spiritual mindedness.
  2.  We are saved to serve.
  3.  Selfless.
  4. Submissive to the Sovereign will of God.
  5. Loving.
  6. Humble.
  7. Sensitive to the needs of others.
  8. Soul winners (bear fruit).

These Christian men are in dire need of discipleship.  I am somewhat amazed there is no one doing this here.

Our Institute for Pastoral Leadership and Development begins in a few day.  May God help me train some local men to be disciplers. The fields are white for harvest.

*The “A” Team is a term I use for the four of us pictured.  Over the past several years we have traveled around town together, meeting deportess and praying with them.

    • Thanks for reading. The new day is just beginning here and it is already in the 90’s with high humidity. Ready for a new adventure today. Thank you.

  2. Thank you Pastor for leading in the study of the Word today. Also, a blessing to have you back as our spiritual leader here in Phnom Penh, where we can get caught up in the world and our selfishness and forget our calling to serve and share the love of Jesus.

    • You are welcome, my brother. It is a privilege for me to be here. The world is a tough place for us all, which is why we need each other. Thank you, Mout, for being a good friend as we grow together in the grace and knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.
