Men's Disciplemaking  is a ministry of the Christian and Missionary Alliance (C&MA). Our purpose is to assist churches in developing healthy ministries to men. We encourage local churches to build effective and intentional methods for creating, capturing and sustaining a ministry to men that is unique to its own situation. To assist churches in building on that framework, we seek best practices and success stories in discipling men from across The Alliance. Our vision is to see churches move men from the community and disciple them into service. The website is based on the "No Man Left Behind" model developed by Man in the Mirror. For more information on the model go to: www.nomanleftbehind.org.

Empowered to Serve

I Have Strength and Love 

 â€¦ that He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with might through His Spirit in the inner man, that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the width and length and depth and height— to know the love of Christ which passes knowledge; that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.)  (Ephesians 3:16-19)

 Paul continues his prayer for the Ephesians he began in chapter 1. His prayer is for God to give them inner power through the indwelling of Jesus Christ. By being in Christ they would be strengthened, rooted and filled with the presence of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

 As disciples we are engaged in spiritual warfare. Therefore, we need to rely on spiritual strength to persist and love to capture the attention of those we encounter on our journey. That strength and love come from our being in Christ.

 Because Christ indwells us as believers, we can rely on the power of God within to come against all evil. Why do we need the armor of God (Ephesians 6)? We live in a corrupted world diametrically opposed to our Lord. We can succeed against the world, the flesh, and the devil with spiritual weapons. it is spiritual warfare.

Paul goes on to say that we are filled with the fullness of God because Christ lives within us. So it is with His presence that we are strong and rooted in love. In this we are equipped to serve Him, and advance His kingdom.

Are you experiencing His strength and love as a disciplemaker?
