“Come with Me,” a Call to Walk with Jesus

Led More By Jesus

In this 25th anniversary article, Hollis Kim (Arrow Class 3) reflects on the first disciples Jesus called to be with him, and how they were attentive, available and responsive to be led by him. Share this article with some friends who might be interested to cultivate, with you, an appetite and aptitude for being led more by Jesus. 

In Mark 1:16-20, Jesus invites four fishermen to follow him on a journey – a journey of being led by Jesus, becoming a new person. This invitation is a calling, a vocation, first to be with him. Jesus gives no details, no specifics about where he is going, but he does make this intriguing promise: “I’ll make a new kind of fisherman out of you. I’ll show you how to catch men and women…”

This call of Christ is an invitation to relationship, student-hood and follower-ship.

These first invitees of Jesus immediately and unquestioningly responded. They dropped everything they were doing, leaving behind all that was familiar: their identity, their work/business, their family and prosperity. Jesus was so compelling, they left it all.  Continue Reading

Arrow Story – Jason Fizzard

Arrow’s Vision is to see: Christian Leaders equipped to influence every sphere of society, impact every nation, and reach every person for Jesus. In celebrating Arrow Leadership’s 25th year, we’ve asked Arrow Leaders – from class 1 to present – to share their insights on “being led more by, leading more like and leading more to Jesus.”

Jason Fizzard, Arrow Class 36, shares from Vietnam where he lives and works to equip and support Christian English teachers in Asia. Jason talks about his involvement with the Arrow Leadership Program as a training ground for him to be led more by Jesus and more equipped to train others.

Thanks for watching; please post and share with others!

Communicating in a World of Secular Spirituality

Leading More To Jesus

In this special 25th anniversary article, Merv Budd (Arrow Class 9) observes that many Christians have become largely unconversant in the lingua franca of secular spirituality – in other words, not knowing how to have spiritual conversations with our neighbours and friends. Read his insights, interact with the questions, and practice speaking in a new language.

Recently, I was at a talk where the speaker mentioned the rise in the number of people who are unaffiliated with organized religion, yet who would refer to themselves as “spiritual.” One of the people present made the comment, “What does that even mean?” For some reason, this comment cause an “aha” moment for me.

I think, for very many Christians, we have become largely unconversant in the lingua franca of secular spirituality (a language that is used among people who speak various different languages). We do not know how to have spiritual conversations because we have a fairly narrow understanding of what those conversations need to be about. Continue Reading

See Everything Through Jesus’ Heart

Led More By Jesus

In this special 25th Anniversary article, Arrow leader Mark Buchanan, Class 10, writes about dwelling in Christ so deeply that you see everything through Jesus’ heart. Read Mark’s inspiring perspective and pass this story along for others to benefit from his unique view on this topic.

I had an epiphany in Bolivia.

Christ the Redeemer

It was in the city of Cochabamba. Towering above that city, similar to Rio de Janeiro in Brazil, is a 100-foot statue of Jesus. He glows white, as though in transfiguration. His face is set with deep calm and fierce resolve. His arms are stretched wide, both cruciform and welcoming: Come unto me, all you who are weary. I drove with a friend up the precipitous gravel road to the base of the statue and stood at Jesus’ feet, looking up in fear and trembling. Continue Reading
