“How can we be captured by His love for us and what it led Him to do on our behalf, and not be moved to follow Him in the work of the gospel?”

January 27, 2019

Should I stay or should I go? When talking about living out the Great Commission, that seems to be the choice that is put before us. But what if “staying” is more about remaining faithful to the person and purpose of Jesus than it is about a location? What if the choice we think of between staying and going isn't a choice at all? Staying is what we do when we go, whether we go out into West LA or West Africa, because it’s about staying with Jesus on His mission by prioritizing disciple-making in our lives.

Application Questions

  1. In what ways have you been thinking of staying and going as opposing options? How have you been challenged to rethink what it means to stay and go?
  2. What is the place/priority of disciple-making in your life? What changes do you need to make to place disciple-making in a higher priority than it currently is?
  3. How can you engage with your community group to help each other think about where God wants you to stay?
