Featured Articles

1. Introduction to Discipleship (Ettu Nomb Day 7 Theme)

In the Kingdom of God, the roles of the lord and that of the servant are reversed. Jesus came to serve, not to be served. So, it is only appropriate that Mary go to Elizabeth's home to visit her than the other way around. ...

2. Mary Offers Sublime Model of Service

The words: "Let it be to me according to your word" (Lk 1:38), show in her who declared herself handmaid of the Lord, a total obedience to God's will. ...

7. The Paradox of the Cross - What Does It Mean to Bear the Cross

Jesus said that if we are to truly be His disciple, we are to "take up our cross daily and follow Him" (Luke 9:23). But what does that mean? ...

8. Discipleship: Martyrdom of Early Christians

Jesus, having called his disciples, sets forth the seriousness and costs of discipleship. All other relations, even relationships as deeply profound as those with one's parents or spouse or children, must remain subordinate to this more fundamental relationship. Jesus, therefore, brings a sword to cut the ties of loyalty that might supersede discipleship. ...
