Has the modern, American Christian lost the meaning of what it means to follow Jesus? Has “deciding to follow Jesus” been reduced to a list of do’s and dont’s? David Platt, in his small booklet, discusses these questions and knows that there is so much more.
Platt exhorts Christians to really understand what it means to be Christ follower and what it would look like if Christians live out sacrificial love for God and others. He explains that were the American church embrace its calling from God the world would take notice and things would look much different. It would cause many to follow those who follow Christ; disciples would be made.
That is what following Christ should do: make disciples.
