High Invitation & High Challenge

invitation-challenge-leadership_22

Disciple, this is the course we try to steer when discipling others.

“Come as you are, but don’t stay as you are”

“You are so loved, and we’d love to help you grow.”

“Hey, let’s eat together and let’s change the world!”

High invitation, high challenge, together, same time, same path. Loved by the Master, and increasingly laying down our lives for Him.

To bless others

Double down on your strengths.

Would it serve the body for the foot to spend all it’s efforts improving its listening skills? Or if the eye was stressing out about its lack of ability to lift things?

Not at all!

Bring your gifts! Regularly, emphatically, again and again. We’re different, we need each other, and one outworking of this is –  play to your strengths.

Discouraged and Faltering

Disciple, there’ll be times in your walk when you’re discouraged and faltering.

But know this, the one we follow is described in these terms:

“A bruised reed he will not break,
    and a smoldering wick he will not snuff out.
In faithfulness he will bring forth justice;
     he will not falter or be discouraged
till he establishes justice on earth.”

Gracious and gentle.

Faithful and unfaltering.

Set like flint,

his purpose will prevail.

Look up.
