There are some things that came up in the discussion that I would love your feedback on:
— Obedience – our job is to be obedient to God. Results are up to God. Measuring obedience in some ways (do not commit murder) is easy to do. But, what about in other ways (loving God, loving others)? Is it possible to measure or evaluate? I think we should try. What do you think?
— The Great Commission: Go make disciples, teaching and baptizing (my paraphrase). How obedient are we to that commandment? Have we made any disciples today, this week, this year? I know its not like making widgets and is potentially a long process. So, I would love to hear how this commandment is playing out in your lives. This isn’t to compare who is doing better. I am interested in hearing how God is working in and through you to bring others close to Him.
So, how are you loving God, others and making disciples? I think we can should discuss this. It sure is better than talking about church attendance, building projects or whether or not we put a projector screen in the church. Shouldn’t this be the center of our lives, discussions and ministry?
OK, I’ll stop. You start! Go.
