First, I’m so grateful for Doug and his team for aggregating what Curtis made available. What a blessing to our church and to my family!
Our church signed up about 80 people this last Sunday to this challenge, and I hope that each one of them are just as impacted as I am by pursuing this new paradigm.
That being said…
The Wesley inventory hit me hard.
It doesn’t take much to make me a little emotional (ask my wife), but I really am thinking about how often I disappoint and how often I fall short. Many of the items were ones that I’m asking for prayer for my life, but the most important was…
Do you share your faith?
No, no I sure don’t do it. And that makes me the biggest hypocrite of all. Why wouldn’t I share about the goodness of God? Why wouldn’t I share His redeeming message?
Our family started this week by praying for a stranger we met at Wendy’s. We talked with him about environmentalism (his topic) and quickly said a prayer whilst our girls (4, 2) screamed (it was getting late). But, we encouraged him and shared that we too believe that Jesus is the Christ.
I need this day to remind me that I have things to work on. When I arrive to work, I’m printing off the inventory. It’s going by my computer. I need to see it to remember to be a disciple worth replicating.
