Replicate Round Up for January 8, 2016

Replicate Round Up for January 8, 2016

Replicate-Roundup-v3.1-300x143As we find articles and resources that talk about Disciple-Making, we are going to collect them and publish them each Friday.

The Incarnation matters all year long

The Church has a template for her mission. Missiologists often cite the Incarnation as the ultimate example of cultural contextualization. That is, Jesus was the proto-missionary. He spoke our language, learned our ways and honored our customs. He served others instead of dominating them. He adjusted to our culture without ever compromising the message. The missional church has been learning from him ever since. Discipleship is not about keeping people busy inside the church building all week long; it is about getting them back out into the world, to be the presence of Christ. We got that from him!
