The Second Dimension: Discipleship

In keeping with our vision of Gospel-Centeredness, Discipleship and the Ministry of the Saints, I found this quote from Jerry Bridges inspiring:

We believers do need to be challenged to a life of committed discipleship, but that challenge needs to be based on the gospel, not on duty or guilt. Duty or guilt may motivate us for awhile, but only a sense of Christ’s love for us will motivate us for a lifetime.

(Colorado Springs, Co.: NavPress, 1994), 24-25
