I think all Christians are aware of areas where we need to obey God and we are not obeying. I am. Aren't you?

I wonder what would happen if everyone who reads this blog post just did one simple thing: Ask God what He wants you to do to obey Him today - and then do it!

Consider the reality that the Bible is a unified story of God's mission. 

How amazing that we get the awesome privilege of joining God in His mission today.

Unfortunately, most Christians who engage in what they consider "missional" activities do not actually think about or consider how those activities contribute to making disciples who make disciples.

Christians have erroneously concluded that following Jesus is only about becoming like Jesus. They devote themselves to going to church, learning about Jesus, worshipping Jesus, and serving other Christians, yet they don't actually engage in making disciples.
