Yesterday as I was reflecting on Psalm 111, I determined to write out my own psalm. I started with the same opening and closing lines. I simply tried to express my heart to God in response to His love and grace in my life. Since it was October 2 - I am calling it Psalm 10/02.

Praise the Lord!

Make Your Life Count https://www.missionalchallenge.com/make-your-life-count/ https://www.missionalchallenge.com/make-your-life-count/#respond Fri, 15 May 2015 06:30:00 +0000 http://lawrencemediainteractive.com/mc/index.php/2015/05/15/make-your-life-count/ While I’ve always been as old as the Ford Mustang (both were born in 1965), it seems significant that we have both been around for 5 decades. Personally, I cannot say that I feel “50”, however, since I’ve never felt this “age” before, I’m not sure I know what it actually feels like.

As I have reflected on this milestone, I’ve spent quite a bit of time thinking about my dad. When he died, I was 17 years old. By now, I've lived more of my life without my dad physically present in my life than I lived having him around.

Don’t just train leaders, train leaders who are training leaders. Every time you train someone to do anything, include an emphasis in your training on how they can pass the training on to others.

Why Your Church’s Strategy Must Be Disciplemaking https://www.missionalchallenge.com/why-your-churchs-strategy-must-be-disciplemaking/ https://www.missionalchallenge.com/why-your-churchs-strategy-must-be-disciplemaking/#respond Thu, 11 Sep 2014 05:44:00 +0000 http://lawrencemediainteractive.com/mc/index.php/2014/09/11/why-your-churchs-strategy-must-be-disciplemaking/ Christ’s strategy was disciplemaking. Therefore, the Church (those who belong to and follow Christ) must be disciple makers.
Jesus strategy of disciplemaking involved investing in a few men, calling them to be with Him, grounding them in His truths.

More and Better Disciples https://www.missionalchallenge.com/more-and-better-disciples/ https://www.missionalchallenge.com/more-and-better-disciples/#respond Wed, 10 Sep 2014 06:15:00 +0000 http://lawrencemediainteractive.com/mc/index.php/2014/09/10/more-and-better-disciples/ In a very simple sense - the Church brings God glory by engaging in the mission on which Jesus sent His disciples - to go and make disciples!
Go make MORE disciples.
Go make BETTER disciples. I think it's a both/and proposition.

Churches are too focused on helping people to live the "Christian life" as if all Jesus expects of His followers is to be good Christians.

Jesus did not let him, but said, “Go home to your own people and tell them how much the Lord has done for you, and how he has had mercy on you." So the man went away and began to tell in the Decapolis how much Jesus had done for him. And all the people were amazed. (NIV)
I love this story.

Do you know any? I'm wondering where they are?
Specifically, I'm looking for men and and women who have strategically multiplied disciples and leaders who make disciples who make disciples.
