the mission:day 5

[Read & meditate on Matthew 28.18-20. What would it take to live out the mission that Jesus called us to? Are you living it?]

I can’t make disciples of Jesus if I’m not living as one. I can’t immerse people into God’s reality–Jesus’ way of life, if I am not immersed into it. I can’t successfully teach anyone to live what I am not living. Scary question–when I look at those that are following me, what can I learn about where I am at in my discipleship?
You get the sense of intentionality. Disciples are developed on purpose. I need to be purposeful in leading others. I can’t do this on my own. This is why I am so encouraged to know that Jesus is with me. If I continue to be with him, I will continue to become more like him–that helps.

Am I living as a disciple of Jesus?
Whether I am aware of it or not, I am making disciples. What am I making them disciples of?
How can I re-orient myself to be more with Jesus?
