One of my very best friends, Matt Orth, once challenged me to never forget my Peter, James and John. He also walked thru a series for student ministry types teaching about the need to disciple our students and how that happens in relationships. What he meant with those two statements was to keep pursuing the crowd (those who don’t know Christ), but not at the expense of discipling those who do know Christ (must be growing!). So, I do.
And sometimes it’s AWESOME! And sometimes it’s not.. But it’s always worth it. Always.
You should disciple others too. Even if it means getting up really early before work or school or when you’re tired or are having a rough day. Do NOT do this to the detriment of your relationship with your wife, and it MUST be done with a deep abiding relationship with the Vine (John 15).
