We hear a lot about discipleship these days, and about developing a personal relationship with God, but what do these phrases mean and how do we make them real in our lives?
In Becoming a Fervent Disciple by John P. Lozano, the author explores what it really means to follow Jesus. Too often, he says, we tend to be satisfied with being good disciples when God calls us to be great ones. Too often our Christian spirit gets tamed and domesticated, the edge dulled, the fire cooled. It’s the difference between a placid Sunday assembly and a parish community on fire with the gospel.
Becoming a Fervent Disciple by John P. Lozano contains a series of insightful and practical chapters, which show you how to push past the good and to strive for greatness, and to become a joyful disciple, fervent and fearless in sharing the good news of Jesus message everywhere in your life each day.
These simple, effective steps for becoming a more fervent disciple found in Becoming a Fervent Disciple by John P. Lozano are meant for all of us. As Pope Francis has said, “No one is excluded from the joy brought by the Lord”.
