Overcome: Inexperience – I Will Invest in Others

(Begin with 1-2 minutes of silence)

Making disciples is something that can be done in a number of ways. But for the vast majority of people in our culture, making disciples is something that occurs relationally over time. As you get to know others and allow yourself to be known by others, you’re on the pathway of making disciples.

While there’s no simple checklist of what it looks like to make disciples, somebody recently shared with me (Pastor Justin) a daily checklist of their MIT’s, or “Most Important Tasks.” This list provides an excellent overview of what it looks like to regularly connect with God and to invest in the lives of others.

Daily MIT’s – Most Important Tasks

1) Connect with Jesus

2) Connect with People

3) Connect People to Jesus

4) Connect People to People

5) Connect People with their Purpose

What do you think? Is this a good model for how you can grow in making disciples? 

READING & JOURNALING:

     MATTHEW 5:14-16

Do you think the daily MIT’s is a good model for how you can grow in your understanding of God and follow through on Jesus’ command to make disciples? Explain your answer.

PRAYER:

Heavenly Father, today I simply pray that You will continue to shape me into somebody who regularly connects with you, connects with people, connects people to You, connects people to people, and connects people with their purpose. I pray in Jesus’ name. Amen.
