Good morning Jesus, help me to hunger and thirst for you throughout my day.
Today we look at the importance of multiplication and Disciples making Disciples.
It is a great thing when you accepted Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior. It is a greater thing when you take time to lead someone else to accept Jesus as their Lord and Savior. It is the greatest thing when you take the time after leading someone to Christ to spend time and Disciple them and see them lead someone to Christ. Jesus did not command us to simply evangelize, he commanded us to make disciples. Leading someone to Christ is an important part of the process, but not the fulfillment of Jesus's command for us, which is to make disciples who make disciples.
“Discipleship" is an "in" word in the church today. Books and trainings are being written about discipleship. Many churches claim they are about making Disciples. If someone were to stand up in front of your church, your ministry, your family and ask all to stand up. They then said those who have done the great thing of accepting Christ as their Lord remain standing. Then they said in the past 6 months, all those who done the greater thing of leading some to Christ remaining standing. Finally they said in the past year those that have done the greatest thing and discipled someone to leading someone to Christ remain standing. How many would be left standing? If no one or few are left standing, then you need to honestly reflect on your claim your church is about making disciples as Jesus commissioned, and re-think your discipleship training at your church. Today's challenge is critical. Here is a great article on 5 Myth’s of Jesus’ Great Commission to read when you can.
