I have been enthusiastically drawn to worship leading, and the concept of worship for years. It has only been about a year now that discipleship has held such a hold on me as well. A second passion, if you will.
Now I find myself obsessed with something that changes everything…the lost.
Jesus commanded us ass to go and make disciples of the nations…and we can’t even seem to make disciples of our disciples. Why? Because it’s not that we aren’t capable. We are fully capable. God gave us that power.
So why aren’t the lost on our minds every day? Why aren’t we seeking a Paul for ourself and a Timothy for ourself? Where has discipleship gone?
To me it seems like it clings to life in various discipleship programs, schools, and Masters Commissions. And while these things are all good, this wasn’t what discipleship was meant to be…it was dreamed to be so much more. A daily lifestyle of every person who calls themselves a Christian.
But maybe people will just see this, say “huh” and then pass right along…maybe someone will make a change. Maybe you will choose to do something different. Maybe another life can be saved. Maybe everything will just stay the same…..
……but maybe…just maybe, it won’t.
