“Becoming a Disciple of Jesus: Equipped to Do Works of Faith”: an inspiring and practical approach for performing the ministry of reconciliation which God has given to all who truly believe in Him. “Becoming a Disciple of Jesus” is the work of published author John F. Sandoz, a former U.S. Navy SEAL officer and the co-founder and chairman of the nonprofit, Institute for Faith-Based Diplomacy in Washington, DC.
Sandoz writes, “Christian growth is a deeply personal and spiritual choice that recognizes our unending need for Jesus not only as Savior but also as LORD over our lives. That recognition sometimes comes after losing the things that seemed to matter most and humbly acknowledging before God that we need a new life and not just a better version of the old life, which produced little of lasting value.
Discipleship is not and never can be a self-improvement program, because self is actually a big part of the problem. Transforming our lives is not something we can do; because even on our best days, our sin nature opposes such transformation. As the Apostle Paul said, ‘For the good that I wish, I do not do; but I practice the very evil that I do not wish” (Rom. 7: 19). Our only hope for real change resides in Jesus’ assurance that ‘what is impossible for man is possible for God.’”
Published by Christian Faith Publishing, John F. Sandoz’s new book offers both new and mature believers a path to spiritual completeness through works of faith that will transform them into persons representing God’s image.
Its many useful insights concerning the power of God’s transforming love and His compassion for human limitations draw heavily from scripture in this practical approach to spiritual growth. Sandoz equips the reader to make their lives living evidence of divine love by humbling submitting themselves to God’s will and drawing on His grace as the central influence in new and abundant lives lived for God’s eternal purpose.
