"Disciples Make Disciples"Stuart Jones An old Cherokee legend tells of a grandfather talking with his grandson about a battle that wages within people. He said, “My son, there is a battle between two wolves. One wolf is evil, it represents anger, jealousy, greed, envy and arrogance. The other wolf is good, it represents love, peace, hope, compassion and faith.” The grandfather continued, “These two wolves living inside of us are constantly in battle with each other.” The young grandson pondered these words for a few minutes, then asked his grandfather, “Which wolf wins?” The old grandfather answered wisely and simply, “The one we feed.” Leading people to Jesus is what we as Christians have been instructed to do, but we can’t stop there. We must be Christian examples and live our lives immersed in the Word of God—studying it, praying over it and obeying it. That way, we can mentor and teach new believers; in other words, feed them. It’s not enough to lead someone to Christ, see them baptized and then disappear from their lives. We must be ready to share our testimony with others. “But in your hearts revere Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope you have. But do this with gentleness and respect.” 1 Peter 3:15 (NIV)
