Every follower of Jesus Christ should be able to answer two simple questions: Who is investing in me? Whom am I investing in? God desires to pour an abundance of spiritual and emotional capital into your life — directly and through older and wiser believers. And he wants to use you to pour spiritual and emotional capital into the lives of others. Along the way, you’ll be changed. Others will change. God calls this process of spiritual investing “making disciples.” It’s the heart of the Great Commission. It’s the vision of a great local church. It’s the secret of a healthy, joyful, secure, and significant life.
We call it “the invested life.” Unfortunately, many Christians have never had someone disciple them or show them how to make a disciple. The very idea often engenders frustration or even fear. Does that describe you? Then this book is for you. From New York Times bestselling author Joel C. Rosenberg and his spiritual mentor, Dr. T. E. Koshy, comes a book that imparts a clear, compelling, scriptural vision of discipleship and is also an effective, tested, proven how-to guide. The Invested Life is full of practical suggestions and personal testimonies of Christians transformed by the investment of others.
