My sweet friend and encourager, Lauren at FaithFuel, honored me with the *Mathetes Award. Mathetes is the Greek word for disciple, and the role of the disciple is to make more disciples. What I love about Lauren is that she loves Jesus passionately and that she doesn’t give up on me even when I get swallowed up by life and God, and disappear from blogger world. By the way Lauren, and friends, I am setting aside Monday mornings as “journaling my journey” day starting next week! I have so much to catch you up on, so ya’ll come back now!
Back to the Mathetes award….a few years ago I asked God to give me a mission statement for my life. He wrote these words on my heart: To make Jesus famous.
More than anything, I want to know Him and be known by Him so deeply, that in knowing me – others will know HIM! Jesus said, “this is eternal life: that they may know You (Father God), the one True God and Jesus Christ whom You have sent (John 17:3). Friend, let’s make that our prayer today – to know Him and make Him known.
I’d like to take the opportunity to award six other bloggers with this award for the creative and life-changing impact they are making as disciples and disciplers of Christ:
