True Discipleship

Glenn, a long-time friend of mine, retired a number of years ago from youth ministry, but he did not put his love for young people on a shelf. During a visit to Chicago, he befriended Ricardo, a young Latino man, and led him to Christ. Although Glenn lives in Southern California, he began discipling his young friend long distance.
Glenn's friend stayed in touch with him until recently. Out of deep concern for his spiritual well-being, Glenn repeatedly tried to reach him, but to no avail. Finally, he was able to contact someone at Chicago’s Moody Church who knows the young man. She agreed to visit him at his workplace and inquire about his spiritual health.
Glenn has requested prayer for this situation.
Such concern for a new believer serves as an example for all of us. A group hug at church falls far short of reaching out to a brother or sister in Christ who needs to be nurtured in the faith. Perhaps the Lord will use you and me to restore a lagging believer to a steady pace in the Christian race.
