In a recent post I discussed the vitality of reading the Bible radically and meditating on it meticulously in order to abide in Christ, produce spiritual fruit, have an increased desire to make disciples, and be more prepared to discuss the gospel with a non-believer. The simple fact of the matter is that we fear conversations in which those we are discipling ask us questions we are not prepared for. And frankly, most of us do not even have much of a desire to make disciples. I argued in that post that the more we read and meditate, the more we will encounter God and see the necessity in sharing his gospel with those who do not know him. The more we know God, the more we will desire others to know him.
However, I feel guilty that I did not provide any tangible ways in which someone could do this. While readers may have left my post nodding their heads and agreeing with my thoughts, I feel that I failed in providing anyone with anything tangible that they could use to begin reading radically. Yes, I gave an example, but I felt I needed to go deeper. If we are going to take disciple-making seriously, we must take reading the Bible seriously.
If you would like to seriously start making-disciples, then you must begin or continue reading the Bible radically. Here are some books, reading plans, and resources that will aid in your fight to flee sin, pursue holiness, and pursue joy in God for his glory. There is a book and reading plan here for every Christian. But as I have previously stated, please, just read. And when you read, do so radically—for joy and glory.
