Overview

Doing the Works of Jesus: Book 1: Becoming a Disciple Who Loves by Alan Drake

An inspiring and encouraging guide designed to break though mental objections and empower readers to realize that God desires to accomplish great things through them, this book offers practical guidance, based upon Scriptural principles, to help readers begin to experience the reality of the promise that Jesus made when he said:

"Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do he will do also; and greater works than these he will do, because I go to My Father." - John 14:12 (NKJV)

The promise contained in this Bible verse is the foundation upon which this book series is based.

Going against the grain of traditional Christian ministry and evangelism that is based on preaching, the author advocates an approach that focuses on meeting the needs of people; thus fulfilling Christ's command to love one another, as He has loved us (John 15:12). Challenging the traditional approaches, the author also boldly asserts that this is the way Jesus did ministry, and that what Jesus did, we can do also!

This book takes the focus of Christian ministry and turns it 180 degrees, insisting that the most significant ministry events in our lives, as in Jesus', will not be experienced in church meetings but will be found outside of traditional church meetings, as we learn to focus our attention on the encounters that we have with people every day.

This book offers practical steps to help prepare Christian believers to do the works of Jesus on a daily basis. Readers will be challenged to move now into lives of fulfilling and empowering ministry that they may have desired, but never thought possible; offering practical guidance to get them started.
