“Why are there so many decisions for Christ yet so few disciples?”

23 years ago my life changed forever – I accepted Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior. While there was change the first 15 years it wasn’t until I surrendered my life to Christ that there was true life change. What provoked the change? It was this quote:

“Why are there so many decisions for Christ yet so few disciples?”

This quote is from Chip Ingram’s book r12 – True Spirituality. For the first time I understood the Lordship of Christ.  And it was this quote that motivated me to create D2D Ministries: From Decision 2 Disciple.

The angels in Heaven cheer whenever a single person decides to give his/her life to Christ. Sometimes though we as the Body do not provide much direction after the decision.  Probably similar to a teenager getting their driver’s permit and saying good luck out there! No, we drive alongside them, we guide them, we encourage them, and we provide instructions and correction as needed.

Well that is why I created D2D – I want to provide inspiration, motivation, and mostly encouragement to believers as they move beyond the decision. Saying it another way, when we accept Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior we definitely hang on to the Savior part but sometimes forget about the Lord part – I know that was the case for me for 15 years.

My weekly devotions you have been receiving via email will continue but you need to sign up at D2DMinistries.com to receive them. Sign up here: Email Sign Up

In addition to the weekly devotions, D2D will also contain:

  1. Discipleship materials and resources (note: these will begin to be available starting in early December)
  2. Media picks of the week (great Christian books, movies, and music)
  3. Question (and answer) of the week – for example, last week’s question and answer was how to pray without ceasing.

Lastly, I want to thank all of you for your support in reading my emails, and especially for your comments and notes of encouragement – they really mean a lot to me!

Please let me know if you have any questions!

In His Service,

Ed
