I began a disciple-making lifestyle at the prime-time age of 30 upon the encouragement of an older friend. Though, I sensed God wanted me to do it, I was scared to death to start. For one, I had no clue how to disciple anyone. I had no specific training nor had I ever been discipled by another myself. Plus, at the time, I had a demanding job with 4 young kids at home and was leading a College/Career ministry in our church. So where would I find the time?
But no matter the number of excuses I could conveniently accumulate, God lead me to trust Him beyond my lack of time and training. He soon gave me a teachable young believer – and so we began. And what a life-changing experience it turned out to be! The thrill of being personally involved in a disciple-making lifestyle is like none other! What reasons or excuses hold you back from personally engaging in “becoming a better disciple, to make more and better disciples” with your life?
May this blog from my friend, Justin Gravitt, be of specific encouragement to you.
