Discipleship and the Church

A few years back I was catching up with a friend who is on staff with a campus ministry. He loves the lost and has a real desire to see the world, and students in particular, come to faith and grow in maturity. As we discussed his plan to disciple his students, he mentioned there […]

Deeply Broken, Willfully Rebellious

“I am a mess, yet deeply loved by God.” What a wonderful truth: that as I fumble through life God, who remembers my frail frame (Psalm 103:14), is gracious with me, The eternal, infinite, holy God knows that I am finite and is patient with me. While being a mess yet loved seems to capture […]

The Struggle is Real, and Jesus is Too!

Spotify Playlist In my 27 years on earth, there are very few things I know with certainty. One thing I am certain of is that life is tragic, and God is faithful. The apparent discrepancy between these two truths creates a beautifully painful tension that many of us may refer to as “struggle.” We fight to experience […]

How to Build Accountability in Discipleship: A Practical Tool

Developing and maintaining accountability relationships is essential to discipleship.  The general idea behind an accountability relationship—usually put in terms of having an “accountability partner”—is to have a support system in place that can help you guard against sin, provide someone to confess to when you do sin, and to encourage you in disciple’s life. Verses […]

Citizenship and Discipleship

Written by Dr. Frank Anderson The 2016 presidential election was the fifteenth presidential election of my lifetime and I remember significant details related to each of those elections, except the first two of my life (1960 and 1964).  As part of my love for America and our wonderful experiment with democracy, I have always looked […]

10 Practical How-To’s of Discipleship

Jesus’ last words to His followers gave explicit instructions to make disciples of people all over the world. As followers of Christ, we are all commanded to make disciples. But sometimes that command can be overwhelming. We may feel daunted about the process, thinking we don’t have what it takes to disciple anyone. Others are […]

Discipleship-Do-Nots: 10 Things a Discipleship Relationship Shouldn’t Be

Christian leaders have said a lot about what making disciples should be.  But knowing what to do involves an awareness of what not to do, and becoming what should be means avoiding what shouldn’t.  So here we go, what a discipleship relationship isn’t: Moral policing:  Discipleship isn’t less than moral accountability, but it’s much more.  Unlike versions of Christian […]

What Superheroes Can Teach Us About the Christ

Undoubtedly Judas would have preferred Barabbas—the other “son of the father,” whom John calls a “revolutionary”—to the carpenter’s son from Nazareth. After a century of Roman rule, one could hardly blame a Jew who would want a hero to rise up and lead a military campaign to drive out the pagan oppressors. But that desire […]

My Story for God’s Glory

Remembering 9/11

Written by: Corey Latta The Psalmist, writing about the destruction of his precious Jerusalem by the Babylonians, remembered the pain of his nation when he lamented. By the waters of Babylon, there we sat down and wept, when we remembered Zion. To mourn for your nation is biblical. To remember, as the Psalmist did, that […]

Hearing Your Heart, Thoughts from a Poet, and God’s Will for Your Life

Christianity and Islam: Creating the Conversation

Written by: Corey Latta Few issues facing the contemporary church are more pressing than how Christians should relate to Muslims. For Christians, the problem is evident. Islam is a religion that shares Abrahamic origins but denies Christological salvation. Islam, like Christianity, is monotheistic, but Allah, as Muslims call God, barely resembles the God of the Bible. […]

The epistle to the Romans begins with and unfolds from 1:16–17, Paul’s thesis: For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes, to the Jew first and also to the Greek. For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith for […]

Responding to Failure in Discipleship

Written by: Sam Meeks College is an amazing season of life; you have remarkable control over your schedule, can be as sociable (or not) as you please, have unmatched free time to pursue hobbies and develop yourself, and are mentally open to new ides. This mix made me prime for discipleship after coming to Christ as […]

Led Into Temptation

Written by: Sam Meeks It would be a bit dramatic (and inaccurate) to say any single verse is the most overlooked in the New Testament.

Service, Joy, and Romance

Written by: Sam Meeks Weddings are very romantic. In a sense, a wedding feels like the culmination of romance – all of the wooing during courtship and dating, all of the anticipation during engagement, and all of the swelling emotions of the heart seem to collide in consonance during a wedding ceremony. That’s how it […]

Thoughts on Easter

Written by: Corey Latta I find Easter hazardous to my apathy.

“Seeing the crowds, he went up on the mountain, and when he sat down, his disciples came to him.” (Matthew 5:1)   Growing up, I went to a church that had a mural of Jesus on the wall by the children’s Sunday school classrooms. The mural showed Jesus, holding a lamb and surrounded by children. […]

Advent, Day 19: Sharing with Boldness

In those days John the Baptist came preaching in the wilderness of Judea, “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.” (Matthew 3:1-2)   John’s message of repentance would not have been popular and wouldn’t have gone over too well at the time.

What Downline is Doing This Advent Season

I grew up hearing the word “advent” but not giving much thought to what the word meant or whether it should be of any importance to my life. I shrugged it off as another part of an old, archaic religious system that I wanted little to do with. Thus are the thoughts of most non-Christian […]

The Good Coach

I’m a quitter. It sounds harsh, but it’s true. Nothing made that more evident than the Olympic Games held earlier this summer in London. Watching those men and women who have devoted countless hours to training their bodies to achieve amazing feats of strength and endurance filled me with a fair amount of conviction. I […]

A Love That Likes

Over the course of my 29 years I have heard it repeatedly stated, “God loves you”.  What a wonderful truth.  In the midst of all the evil I still display by thought, word, and deed there is a God whose affections for me are unchanging.  At its introduction, the news of this love was like […]

They’ll Know You By Your Love

By Jeff Howard Discipleship has become a buzzword in many Christian circles lately. This isn’t a bad thing; in fact it’s a great thing. Jesus commands all of His followers to make disciples in what’s been nicknamed the Great Commission in Matthew 28:19-20. Sadly, too many have fallen away from this being a commandment to […]

Resolve for Relationship

By Quinton Lytle What is your new year’s resolution?  Do you have one?  Or are you like many of us who have resigned trying to keep New Year’s resolutions because we just don’t seem to get very far.  Why do new year’s resolutions not work?  My pastor once pointed out that these vows of self-discipline […]

You’re Wrong, Too: A Mid-Year Reminder

By Jamie Trussell In Ecclesiastes the Preacher states, “with increased knowledge comes increased pain”.  Often, this is interpreted and applied in the arena of one individual life. For example, the more I learn about the pervasiveness of man’s depravity, the more helpless I feel in my role to affect change. In this illustration, my increased […]

Don’t Be Afraid of the Holy Spirit

By David Arthur What do I believe about the Holy Spirit?  Seems like a question I should have wrestled down a long time ago – seeing that I have been a follower of Jesus since I was 13 years old. A friend gave me a Francis Chan book – Crazy Love. Wow! It was like […]

Hobby Lobby & Spiritual Mathematics

By Iva May None of the Jesus’ disciples were slackers, especially Peter.   Peter begins his second letter to second generation disciples by exhorting them—not to be slackers—but diligently to add character to their faith: “But also for this very reason, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue, to virtue, knowledge, to knowledge self-control, […]

Good Shepherd, Faithful Sheep

By Ariyana Rimson Have you ever taken the time to reflect on Psalm 23:1 (“The Lord is my shepherd I shall not want”)? I started studying Psalm 23 in depth while reading a book by Philip Keller entitled “A Shepherd’s Look at Psalm 23.” It was amazing for my walk with the Lord; I was […]

The Discipline of Receiving

By Kim Seville We all know that “it is better to give than to receive” (Acts 20:35) and there is no disputing this truth. God blesses our efforts to help others through giving, so long as it is done with an attitude of joy and humility. But what I have encountered in discipleship relationships is […]

The Gospel in Adoption

By Shad Berry One of the most impactful messages I received during my time as a student in the DownLine Institute came during our study of Paul’s letter to the Ephesians. Paul explained in detail that they were chosen and adopted in Christ before the foundation of the world. In contrast to an Ephesian culture […]

Don’t Be Afraid of Practicing Righteousness

By Jason Seville Over the past year I’ve been chronologically reading through all four Gospels by following a “Harmony of the Gospels” approach.

Putting Sin to Death

By Kathryn Vaughan As Christians, we all struggle against sin in our lives, but 1 John tells us that no one who knows Him keeps on sinning or continues to live in sin. This issue has been coming up frequently with young believers around me who are living destructive and discouraged lives due to the […]

God Doesn’t Need Seattle

By Jamie Trussell A year ago I was eating at a Chic-Fil-A with two friends and a musician from Seattle. I would wager a #1 with no pickles that this was the first time this particular Seattlite had dined with someone from Southern Alabama, and it did not take long for me to become offended. […]
