The Discipleship Crisis is an Identity Crisis

The good news of the gospel tells us that the only reason we can make a commitment to Christ is because he first committed himself to us. His commitment ran as low as a manger, as deep as the grave, and as gloriously high as the resurrection. God’s radical commitment to us in Christ frees us from bondage to ourselves in order to bind us to his side. His commitment to us not only frees us from petty consumerism, but also delivers us into a kingdom of grace. This grace, when truly tasted, breaks the bonds of self-centered discipleship and releases us into the freedom of Christ-centered discipleship. The gospel liberates us from self-lordship so that we can enjoy Jesus’ lordship.

As a result, generation after generation would be told the glorious deeds of Yahweh (78:4), that they might know him and sing his praise to their children (78:6), “so that a people yet to be created may praise Yahweh” (102:18).
