The church is called to participate with Jesus in his ongoing work to “make disciples” (Matthew 28:18-20). It’s important to know that this work is a relational endeavor, not a mechanical process. This distinction is helpfully addressed by Jeff Hawkins in a Leadership Journal article posted at http://www.christianitytoday.com/le/2008/spring/12.88.html. Here is Jeff’s conclusion:
The church is many faces gathered around the table—the Lord’s table. Only when we understand who we are can we hope to accomplish the work we are called to do.
One thought on “About disciplemaking”
I liked this – it reminded me that discipleship is a life on life endeavor based on trusting our relational God for the outcome, not trying to force something to produce artificially.
