One Actionable Insight

I’ve been thinking a lot about what it takes to make disciple. It’s actually not that complicated. It takes three dynamics:
  • a growing (not perfect) follower of Jesus Christ
  • a healthy (not perfect) local church
  • intentional relationships
When all three are present, disciple-making happens.

Disciple-making is easier than we make it out to be. It doesn’t necessarily require classrooms or curriculum. But that’s a solvable problem. It’s really about making it a priority in our lives.

The missing dynamic is often the third: intentional relationships. We often don’t know what to do or where to start. But it’s often a matter of relationship and intentionality than knowing what to do. We can stumble forward and ask others to pursue Jesus along with us.

As with everything, it always comes back to basics. Put these three in place, and a disciple-making culture will begin to form within the local church.

Takeaway: Disciple-making is less complicated than we think. It’s simple but costly.

Question: How is God already building these three dynamics in your life and church?
