Our congregation uses the six letters of LGLOMD to communicate how we are to live as the baptized children of God. Stated differently, we live out our baptismal identity in Christ by seeking to love God (LG), love others (LO), and make disciples (MD). That is our goal. That is our target. That is how we seek to live.
However, let's be honest. When it comes to making disciples (MD), many of us are a bit lost. We wonder if MDing means going door-to-door to knock and talk people into believing in Jesus. We have tremors as we think about that kind of disciple-making. And maybe...maybe...we are even nervous about the whole concept of disciple-making to begin with. After all, we are not rea
lly very good at the whole following Jesus thing (which is what discipleship really is). How can we then go about making disciples of others when we are not great at it ourselves?
We think discipleship and the idea of making disciples (MD) may be less traumatic than many of us think.
We want to introduce you to D4. Simply stated, D4 is a concept of doing 4 simple things daily that will strengthen you as a follower of Jesus...and may also help you make disciples of others. Let us explain...
We believe everyone...EVERYONE should have at least one daily, meaningful conversation with another person. Whether it is inquiring about how your kids' days were at school...or whether it is you talking on the phone with other members of the Body of Christ...meaningful conversations matter!
These conversations should be more than, "Hey!" or "Good morning." They should be about life. How you are feeling. What others are thinking. Highs. Lows. Life.
Want help in establishing this pattern in your daily rhythms of life as a follower of Jesus? Let us know! We would love to help brainstorm what this would look like in the rhythms of your life.
