God’s Way to Transform Nations

i like this…

Notice the way Jesus got the disciples exercising gifts of leadership from the outset, before they were “ready.” 

Jesus didn’t wait for disciples to be born again, baptized, trained theologically and supervised under a safe religious system with guaranteed controls before He was involving them in leadership.

He got them out telling others about Him within a few weeks of being with Him (Matt 10:1–14).

He led the movement He began from underneath, very quickly involving the disciples in leadership assignments without mentioning positions or titles.

He had a radically different paradigm from that of the religious leaders of His day, and of our day as well.

He was training them to lead before they were actually born again, in our evangelical understanding of what that means.

After all, the journey of discipleship doesn’t start when a person comes to faith in Christ, but long before.

I am reminded of this phrase…

“Think Globally, act locally.”

the goal is to take on the nations.  the task is to mentor one person at a time.
