Thursday is for Making Disciples
“If the unchurched [in the USA] were a nation unto themselves, they would be the eleventh most populated country on earth today.” (Pollster, George Barna, in Rechurching the Unchurched)*
We sometimes fall into the trap of thinking that because many of our friends are believers and go to church that almost everyone believes. The facts are otherwise.
Most of our neighbors desperately need Jesus.
- How are you making Jesus real to your neighbors?
- Is it important to you?
- Do you blow these questions off or allow them to drive you to your knees?
* It is beside the point that, “rechurching” America should or shouldn’t be our goal. I don’t think it should be our goal. Our goal ought to be to make-disciples for the glory of God which is the most radical thing we could possible do. People who are truly disciples of Jesus, truly captured by his sacrifice, truly converted to his mission, truly followers of him who died to redeem them—they ought to be the most radical people in the world.
