There is currently an emphasis in the Church of the Nazarene (CotN) to make disciples of Christ. The CotN’s new mission statement is, “To make Christlike disciples in the nations.” Bishop Nkulu Ntanda Ntambo of the Methodist Church recently delivered a sermon to the Methodist Assembly, and he speaks to the same truth:
Money is not so important. It’s more important to bring Jesus to someone. If the fundraising’s not coming from the bottom of your heart, if Jesus is not there, it’s empty. It’s just vanity.
You Americans enjoy life… All this wealth. This is not going to change the world. Jesus will change the world.
Today, the world is so divided. Many families are brokenâ€¦There is poor and richâ€¦We can’t bring them together as far as Christians, unless we’re willing to bring Jesus to them.
