What Are Your Objections to Disciple Making?
What keeps you from entering into discipleship relationships?
Are you objecting to His command to “go make disciples” in Matthew 28:18-20?
Let me share a personal story of my greatest objection to something the Lord asked me to do.
When I was a brand new baby believer in Christ, our daughter was barely two years old. My disciple maker talked with me about homeschooling. I listened to her case for homeschooling with outward respect, but internal skepticism.
Firstly – I had never heard of homeschooling. Secondly, I was not a certified teacher. Thirdly, as a baby believer, did not assume I was capable of teaching my child – that is what public schools are for. Therefore, when my daughter came to school age, I sent her off to public school.
However, the appeal to homeschool remained in the back of my mind.
