A core value at Biglife, the importance of accountability can not be overstated. Though our primary accountability is vertical to God, being accountable horizontally to other brothers or sisters is necessary and a great benefit to us as well as the healthy expansion of our Lord’s Kingdom. Have you ever stopped to think about what being accountable provides to us as disciples of Jesus? Amongst probably many other benefits... .It keeps us from being isolated. It helps us withstand spiritual warfare. It is for our own protection. It helps keep us humble. It strengthens relationships and increases unity. It keeps us grounded in Scripture, prayer and abiding in Jesus. It helps us to be obedient to the commands of Jesus. It helps us grow into the disciple of Jesus that God desires. .Being accountable should mean that we have someone to pray with us and for us, teach us, rebuke us, rejoice with us, weep with us, encourage us, love us, and spur us on. If you haven't already, find an accountability partner and begin meeting with them at least weekly. hubs.la/Q01g9y3R0 ... See MoreSee Less

Recently in a conversation with a friend, it came to mind that one of the hardest parts in disciple making is seeing actual multiplication.

If the lines above sound familiar, they should. Jesus said them. Well maybe he didn't say them exactly like that, but here is what he said, “Truly, Truly, I...

Stories From Around The World
In Cameroon — Africa, due to heavy rains, truck engines catching fire, unpassable roads... our Biglife team could not get to an unreached people group named the Bomwalis for 5 months. But as you can imagine, the Lord made a way and Biglife later learned the Bomwalis had actually evacuated because of flooding and had not been in their homes for 5 months, but had now returned! Not only did Biglife, and our partner, not give up for five months, but the irony is not lost on us that the Bomwalis would not have even been there had they arrived earlier. Is God in control? We know He is! Bomwali believers are now reaching other Bomwalis for Jesus Christ, for the first time ever!
In 2010, the last church building in Afghanistan was destroyed. There may have been as few as 400 Christians in the whole country. But since then, we’ve seen thousands of people give their lives to Jesus Christ in Afghanistan! How? Through the witness of some former Pashtun Muslims, that became fervent Christ followers. These leaders, and other courageous disciples are getting more and more Muslim Outreach Bibles into the hands of truth-seeking Afghans, despite the threat of Taliban and ISIS killers.
Vijaya Lama used to worship Hindu idols in Nepal. He was also a handy thief. But when he stole a Bible, that stolen Word changed his life. He surrendered to Jesus. Now Jesus is using Vijaya to steal hundreds of Hindus back from the grip of idolatry and sin. He travels from village to village in the mountain passes of Nepal, determined that even if the police come to arrest him for sharing the freedom of Jesus, he will not deny Christ. This video tells the story of how God’s Word is changing Nepal, one heart at a time.
Dieu Sanh, a rice farmer and a former Buddhist, has been sharing the love of Jesus with the people of Vietnam for many years. The authorities of Vietnam responded by imprisoning Dieu Sanh for many years. All he had to do to gain his freedom was to promise to stop telling people about Jesus. Though he missed his family, Dieu Sanh refused every time. “I will preach Jesus,” he said. This video shows how Jesus miraculously made a way for Dieu Sanh to go free, and then to go into all Vietnam.
