Welcome to this series of devotional posts based on ‘Roots & Wings’ an integrative Bible study for discipleship, written by Pastor Edmund Chan, our guest speaker at RISE, QB Convention 2015. Our thoughts will be based around five areas: our human weakness, the resulting problem, the radical re-orientation, the critical need, and the empowered life of Roots & Wings.
TOPIC: Finishing Well
The Radical Re-Orientation: Recognise that we must finish well (John 17:1-8)
God calls all of his followers to be in the world but not of the world. As Jesus prayed for his disciples, he recognised that his earthly ministry was coming to an end. Jesus commissioned his disciples to continue his ministry but not on their own. Jesus prayed for all of his disciples, right down to today for protection, strength and endurance so that his ministry could be completed.
