The secret to the “NO SWEAT” Workout: Time passes but no growth happens.
I’ve discovered the secret to “NO SWEAT” Disciplemaking: Time passes but no real growth happens.
In the New Testament model of life together we’re all believer priests… and in a priesthood of all believers—we’re all gifted, all called, all chosen and all working out together where the church is a gym, and pastors/youth workers are our workout trainers… [our trainers who are of course working out just as hard right besides us—1 Thess. 5:12-13.]
Just like the commercials that follow… YOU GOTTA BE SWEATING TO GET IT!
And we all need to SWEAT disciplemaking, not programs. We sweat disciplemaking friendships. Rich mutual community and one anothering are at the heart of the workout.
In the words of Inigo Montoya, TO THE PAIN!
