The Invested Life: Making Disciples of All Nations One Person At A Time — the book I wrote with my spiritual mentor, Dr. T.E. Koshy — is now available as an audio book from Brilliance Audio. It was a joy to read the book for the audio version, along with my wife, Lynn.
In the book, we make that case that every Christian needs to be able to answer two simple questions:
1) Who is investing in you?
2) In whom are you investing?
In the Great Commission found in Matthew 28:18-20, our Lord Jesus Christ commanded us to go and “make disciples of all nations,” beginning with our own. Sadly, the American Church is experiencing an epic failure of discipleship. Most older believers are not spiritually investing in the lives of younger believers. We are failing to model and transmit Biblical truth and Christ-like character and a passion for evangelism and discipleship to the next generations. Thus the American Church is weak and failing and in desperate need of revival. Thus our nation is increasingly at risk not simply of decline but outright collapse, as I write about in Implosion.
In many ways, The Invested Life is a corollary or a companion to Implosion. Put it another way, Implosion describes the sickness. The Invested Life describes the cure.
I’m very grateful to Brilliance for producing and distributing the audio version, and I hope you’ll find it helpful — listening to it when your driving in your car, while working out, with your family, with a group of friends, or by yourself. May Christ bless you as you listen and embark on an invested life of your own, making disciples from different countries one person at a time!
