Love God, Grow Together, Reach the World

    Friday, September 2

    FriSep22011 ByJonathan ZimanTaggedBe One Make One Devotions Discipleship

    On Sunday, Pastor Rob will finish his three-week series of messages focusing on our church's mission and vision. The title of this series -- "Be One. Make One." -- references our calling as a body of believers to be disciple-makers. This week we will focus our attention on reaching the world.


    How beautiful on the mountains are the feet of those who bring good news, who proclaim peace, who bring good tidings, who proclaim salvation, who say to Zion, “Your God reigns!” (Isa. 52:7, ESV)

    The Kingdom grows as God’s people are sent out into their homes, their schoolyards, their offices, their playgrounds, their communities and our world. Jesus was constantly pushing the disciples into activities they were convinced they were not ready for.

    A disciple who makes disciples who will then make other disciples is fueled by love, leading into action, and launching new disciples into God’s mission “to seek and to save that which is lost” (Luke 19:10). New disciples grow and mature, participating in God’s mission to save a broken world, sharing Jesus with others who then grow and mature, participating in God’s mission, drawing new disciples into the Kingdom and launching them to do the same.

    Someone once noted that if you want to see a moving train, you have to be standing by the tracks. It sounds obvious, but if you want to see God moving in powerful ways, you’ve got to get involved in what he’s doing.

    The Kingdom is expanding and God is doing some amazing, exciting and frequently unexpected things. So if you want to see God change the world, start loving, start leading and start launching.

    Father,
    I see the lost all around me but sometimes it’s hard to know where to start. Guide me as I take the first faltering steps in obedience to your call to make disciples.
    Amen
