Facing Reality… are disciples being made through the work of your church?

Jack Welch said, “Face reality as it is, not as it was or as you wish it to be.

I’ve found that throughout the years of serving in the church we have a tendency to say how it was or how we wished it would be… But how is it really… right now.  Are we doing what we know is true and right for the health of the local church.

Jesus said in Matthew 28:19-20, “19Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”

Discipleship has always been something that I’ve had an interest in and/or have studied over the past 15 years.  What I’ve noticed is that we have a tendency to take several surveys, an array of personality tests, go to way to many conference/seminars on the topic, and very seldom do anything about it.

So… how about this week we have a reality check… face reality as it is… If you are not making discipleship, then stop whatever you are doing and do something different.  It is the first step in you being healthy as a Christian as well as your church being healthy.

Just a thought!
