This is the second post in a series on lessons from summer.
One of my surprising challenges this summer was effectively engaging Christians – and even other disciple makers – in conversation about disciple making movements.
No matter what I said, most people seemed more interested in where I lived than what I did. My passion for discipling the lost and equipping others to do the same seemed to fall on deaf ears.
And then I discovered an important lesson:
In order to effectively communicate what is important to me, I need to communicate what is important to you.
I began this summer talking about the importance and strategy of disciple making movements. And while that remains my passion, it is no longer my starting point. Instead, my starting point is you: how can I help YOU live the mission of Jesus?
- How might this lesson change the way you talk with other disciple makers?
- How could this lesson apply to your relationships with the lost?
- How can I help you live the mission of Jesus?
