|Matthew 28:19 Go make disciples, baptizing &|
teaching them to obey
When I came across the "Logos 365 Challenge" from His Kingdom Come I was already in the midst of reading "Follow Me" by David Platt. My husband and I have studied it as part of an eclectic mix of 20 to 50 somethings study group. It's awesome. This book and study make it abundantly obvious that I am not keeping up my part of the bargain with Jesus. He saved me. The least I could do is tell people how exciting and wonderful my life has been since.
I was also at a crossroads in my life. Feeling stuck doesn't even begin to describe it. There had to be change, but first it involved me getting out of my physical and mental rut to get my groove back. So, the word "go" seemed fitting for the personal, physical, and spiritual focus for my year.
|Jeremiah 29:11 For I know the plans|
I have for you
I had used an atlas on another spread a few months ago so I didn't want to just repeat the look for Matthew 28:19. Thinking about the sphere of influence that I have in "making disciples" gave me the idea to look in my car for a map of our city. Score! There was a downtown visitors guide in the side pocket of my rockin' mini van!
Do you have a "Word of The Year?" Share what and why in the comments below. I would love to hear what you are doing to explore that theme so far this year and if you have journaled it in your Bible.
