“Disciple making takes more faith than any other task of the church.  Since it is top priority for God, it is top priority for Satan.  No work of God’s servant draws more resistance than disciple making.” (Bill Hull)

This quote got me thinking.

 

So true…

We can think of 101 reasons why we can’t, won’t and shouldn’t.

With the latest trend of ‘draw-a-crowd-equals-success’ type of ministry, people are awed and ‘oooooohh-ed” by numbers.

If it was all just about the numbers, then why not get Piolo to preach every Sunday and have Gary V. sing the offering number?  That way, you get thousands every weekend.

But is that really the goal?

Attendance doesn’t mean discipleship as being in Mcdonald’s make you a french fry.

Bill Hull is right.  No work gets more resistance than making disciples.

Busyness… laziness…
Distractions… frustrations…
Offense… Hurts…
Defocus … No focus…

As Pastor Steve would often say, “Same ole boring strokes.”

There’s really no other way to make disciples than to make disciples.

I wish there was a short cut, but there isn’t.

The only way to see this nation transformed is if we see each one become one (disciple)… and for each one make one…

Jesus said to ‘go and make disciples’.  That was His last statement.  It should be our first order … each and every day.

Lord, give us grace to do what You’ve called us to do and be who You’ve called us to be…
