My cousin accepted Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior several years ago. He does a lot of reading and studying of God Word at home. I often ask him to come to church with me and for different reasons he isn’t able to make it. I’ve always thought that discipleship meant getting people to become church members and getting involved in all the cool programs churches have. I thought I was failing, but I now know that may not be the case for everyone.
While I was busy trying to get him into church, he was busy taking church to non-believers. He has many friends who do not know Jesus as their personal Savior. He had been sharing the gospel with many people late at night, while hanging out with his friends. A few friends have given their lives to Christ. These individuals may not have gone and sat during a church sermon, but he took the sermon to them and continues to do that.
When I think of Jesus telling His disciples to go and make more disciples, this is what I envision now: People going out into the world and sharing the gospel and not waiting for them to come to the “church” to do so. I do not think there is an exact science to sharing the Gospel, because people receive information differently. I do think some key ingredients can be learned from an individual who isn’t the typical church member.
1.Build lasting relationships where people can trust what you say is coming from the heart.
2.Read the Word outside of church and have your own personal study.
3.We can’t leave it up to only the pastors to give an invitation for others to accept Christ.
4. Discipleship should take place more than 1 hour a day twice a week.
