Discipleship: To Begin

People often ask, “Where do I begin?” The answer lies in the nature of revival. Revival means starting completely over and beginning again—it is new life. A man or woman unwilling to lay everything at the cross and start from the very beginning, is not ready for God’s revival. Everything must be plowed up for God’s good seed of revival to be planted in you. The ground of your heart must be laid bare and made ready to receive God’s revival seed. To be sure, the old ground that was never plowed must be broken up. For many never received any blessing of His seed. The hard soil, the ground with weeds and the mixed field of wheat and weeds must all be laid bare to the wind, sun, and water that causes God’s seed of revival to produce a harvest of righteousness. That very beginning, the good seed can be examined in my book entitled, Hating for Jesus.

  • For thus says the Lord to the men of Judah and to Jerusalem, “Break up your fallow ground, and do not sow among thorns.” (Jeremiah 4:3 NASB)

If you long for revival, and are prepared to examine yourself to see if you need revival, then Hating for Jesus is the next book you may want to read. This book will help you start with a clean slate. Even if you feel strong in the Lord, it will help you allow the Lord to prune you back so that you will produce more fruit. For you can’t just sew on this new “patch” of material and expect it to survive attached to old spiritual ways.

  • No one sews a patch of unshrunk cloth on an old garment; otherwise the patch pulls away from it, the new from the old, and a worse tear results. (Mark 2:21 NASB)

Hating for Jesus deals specifically with the very first step everyone must take before they can call themselves a Christian. Indeed, if someone is not living and fully preaching John 12:25 and Luke 14:25–35, then they have no eternal life in them. Take warning, Hating for Jesus is not a book for those who do not like the tone of Jesus’ offensive cross.

Revival can only come from the living true God if this Holy Spirit inspired hatred is present and growing. Hating for Jesus speaks directly to this first issue which must be the issue of issues every day for every Christian.
