Decisions or Disciples? Time and Love.

I’m so spending time praying and thinking about how to populate heaven and our wee church.  I think ( and I’m crazy biased!) that our church is incredible.  God’s Presence shows up big time in the worship, we preach/teach the word carefully but with zeal and . . . there’s a boat load of love in the House every Sunday no matter how big or small the gathering is . . . so I’m going back to the basics.

What did Jesus say about our commission?

well if you loosely combine Mark 16 and Matthew 28 Jesus says “preach the gospel to every living thing” and “make disciples” – and then in the parable that everyone equates to inviting people to meet with God . . .decisions vs disciples

Luke 14:23  NIV)

“Then the master told his servant, ‘Go out to the roads and country lanes and compel them to come in, so that my house will be full.

So . . . in reading and re-reading the essentials, the basics on getting out there and “taking it to the streets” – I just don’t get the how we can simply be happy at having people making decisions for Jesus – it’s far greater than that.

Just a few thoughts here . . .

  1. Disciple making takes time, love, patience, fortitude, lots of coffee and some kind of a relationship – right?
  2. Preaching the Gospel, doesn’t mean preaching the Old Testament law – right?
  3. Why did the master compel his servant to grab anyone from anywhere and bring ’em in to fill the House?

Because, when we bring people into the Big House, it’s supposed to be filled with His Presence – therefore how much more will the Presence of God speak and woo and love someone than we are ever capable on our own!

What ever made us think that breezing into someone’s life for the sake of a decision, then breezing out again was building the kingdom of God?

Just sayin’!

God is amazing!
