Why did God create you? What is your purpose? To answer these questions you have to know that the power to define is the power to fulfill...
My mission in this lesson on discipling others is to Discover, Disciple, and Deploy. Jesus said that it would be better if He goes away, but people have not matured to the point of being able to walk without step by step guidance. So it's not to reduce the church back to the days when Jesus walked along side of it but to make sure that everyone is in proper relationship with God and spiritually mature.
There are many voices in the earth today and it is important to listen to the right voice. You will become like whatever voices you are listening to... You have to allow someone to be your teacher. Ask yourself this, would you go to a new job and tell your supervisor what to do?
I was alarmed to learn the statistic that 60% to 70% of people jump from church to church because of spiritual immaturity! Which is often tied into leaving because of an offense or misunderstanding. Be in your set place! Those who are really great are those that listen really well. You are having issues because you have never allowed yourself to sit under the process/training.
There is so much more that I could share from this second lesson on discipling others however I would encourage you to get the CD or DVD as soon as possible so you don't miss anything dealing with this life changing lesson!
