Discipleship is a lot easier than we think it is. Maybe you’ve been in church for a while, and you’ve never been trained nor told that you can and are called to make disciples. So often we just assume discipleship is for the church staff and pastors. But if you follow Jesus, you are called to make disciples right where you’re at.
As believers, we know who God is. We know God is love, good, and kind. We hear it at church every Sunday. We are reminded during the difficult seasons by our friends. If we grew up in the church, we heard is a lot as a kid. But has this knowledge of God’s goodness transferred from our head to our heart?
As you develop that relationship, you can be confident that conversation back to you will be what is best for the situation at hand. The next time you spend time with someone you love, challenge yourself to spend that amount of time with the Lord. Remember He gave his only son Jesus to die for us, so we can have an eternal relationship with Him. Start now by letting Him know how much we love Him. It’s just a conversation a better way to pray!
Unfortunately many of the tracks that we choose to step on lead to destruction, unhappiness, boredom, or a feeling of a void. There are so many tracks to choose from that sometimes we forget what Jesus told us to do- “But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well” Matthew 6:33. As we get on the right track we may ask ourselves, can I endure this till the end?
