What gets in our way when it comes to the church’s mission to make disciples? Let’s look at the things we do at church and they way we spend our time as pastors:
- Preparing a sermon or teaching message in a given week without spending time in disciple-making relationships.
- Spending time meeting with staff and church leaders in a given week in lieu of spending time in personal disciple-making relationships.
Before Jesus left the Earth, what was His final command?
19 Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in[a] the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”
Your time should be spent doing things that see that as the goal.
