I have been encouraged by discipleship.org and their attempt to clarify what we see in the scripture. It isn’t about conversion, its about discipleship. It isn’t about helping people become ushers or donut servers…its about becoming disciple makers.
It helps to follow the Jesus curriculum in this discipleship process that brings us back to the great commission and how the greatest discipler modeled for us how this is supposed to work.
This discipleship thing is a lost art and even after Jim shares, it still seems all to theoretical for me. How do we do this- week in and week out. All he said was stuff we have heard before, but as we live this thing out its harder than Jim has communicated.
Pastors empower. Got it.
Its not about having people be ushers. Solid.
The church is filled with disciples who are discipling. Couldn’t have said it better.
Here is the problem. Have you ever tried this!? It is a slow, its a glacial (as one of our elders says) process. This discipleship thing isn’t a packaged product to give away….rather, its simply more joy in Jesus in your own life that you cannot help but bring other people into.
Still- this video is worth a listen and I am eager to see how this thing continues to get unpacked by these men.
