“Nevertheless, more and more men and women believed in the Lord and were added to their number.”
In this verse from Acts, we are hearing about the apostles going around, performing miracles in Jesus’ name. When I thought about why we build cohorts in TJC, the first thing I thought about was Jesus’ 12 apostles. When we begin the New Testament, we are introduced to 12 men, chosen to be Jesus’ closest followers. They assisted Him in going out and spreading the good news. In a very simple way, we build cohorts because it’s what Jesus did. He knew he could be more effective if He had a group surrounding and supporting Him in His mission.
At TJC, we aim to use our members to go out and build local groups, to then further build our tactically trained group of Kingdom Men. Notice Jesus did not focus necessarily on blanket outreach. He decided the best tactic was to train a special forces group. This is exactly how we aim to train and grow our ranks.
So far this week, we have learned about how TJC created battlefield training for guys that are looking to get involved. Then after using that training and connecting kingdom men, we then look to turn back to our own territory, using that framework to expand His kingdom, just like Jesus’ apostles spreading the good news.
Daily Battle Order:
It’s a new year. Some are focused on losing weight or cutting a bad habit…TJC is focused on preparing men for battle. The first step is realizing you are in a fight, then stepping into the role God would have you lead. Spend some time with the Holy Spirit and see where He is pushing you to get involved. What is your role in the battle? We are here to help identify the enemy and train you for victory.
