The Cross of Discipleship



Delivered at a gathering of leaders at the CSM Gatlinburg Conference, this message by Stephen Simpson draws from the life and message of Dietrich Bonhoeffer to understand how discipleship can work in the 21st Century. A disciple is a “learner” who is willing to be shaped and formed in Christ-likeness in order to fulfill the mission of Jesus.

A disciple not only embraces what Jesus did for us on the Cross, but is also willing to take up their own cross daily in order to follow Him and lead others to Him. This is a stirring call to faithfully deliver the message we have received to this emerging generation.
