Training every Christian needs!

Every Christian needs to be trained to:

  • Put and keep Jesus first!
  • Get and stay passionately in love with Jesus!
  • Keep their promises.
  • Encourage and serve other people.
  • Pray out loud with other people.
  • Be kind to everyone.
  • Hang out with the living Jesus every day.
  • Speak the truth in love.
  • Refuse to compromise with the world or become lukewarm.
  • Read the Bible daily with an open heart.
  • Hear and obey Jesus’ voice.
  • Show mercy to and forgive everyone.
  • Embrace humility.
  • Share their salvation testimony.
  • Bring every thought captive to Jesus.
  • Trust Jesus and His word instead of their feelings.
  • Tell others about Jesus.
  • Make disciples.
  • Honor “the lease of these.”
  • Speak out and stand up for those who are being mistreated.
  • Bless and pray for those who curse them.
  • Confess their sins.
  • Ask God and people for forgiveness.
  • Quickly repent and turn away from all wrongful thoughts and actions.
  • Always be honest.
  • Consider others better than themselves.
  • Cultivate a continual inner flow of the fruit of the Spirit.
  • Operate in the gifts of the Spirit.
  • Let the Holy Spirit convict them and show them where they’re off track.
  • (Feel free to add in the comments other things Christians need to be trained to do.)

Following and obeying the risen Jesus requires rigorous training. It’s time that churches rise to the occasion and begin to make disciples instead of passive sermon-hearers.

About Steve Simms

I like to look and think outside the box. In college I encountered Jesus Christ and I have been passionate about trying to get to know Him better ever since. My wife and I long to see the power and passion of the first Christ-followers come to life in our time. I have written a book about our experiences in non-traditional church, called, "Beyond Church: An Invitation To Experience The Lost Word Of The Bible--Ekklesia." If you need encouragement, search for: Elephants Encouraging The Room and/or check out my Amazon author page. Thank you!
