    The great omission of the Church is the second half of the Gospel (sanctifying Grace). I totally resonate with what JD is saying. As Dallas Willard, one of the greatest thought leaders of the church said, we are guilty of a Gospel of conversion and have omitted the Gospel of Discipleship. I have spent a great deal of time trying to address this issue in my own life and to help others focus on the second half of the Gospel in their lives. What I have found is that there are many reason why this issue exists today. We think we are too busy or we are busy doing the wrong things. We are too comfortable and we don’t sense the need or urgency to change and no one is holding us accountable. We have made salvation mandatory, but discipleship is viewed as voluntary. In my view, the way to change this situation is to make disciples who are equipped to disciple others (2 Timothy 2:2). That’s my prayer for each one of you!
