Expect Non-Sequential Growth
When people think about disciples multiplying, they often think of it as a step-by-step process. First prayer. Then preparation. Then sharing God’s good news. Then building disciples. Then building churches. Then developing leaders. Then reproduction. When we learn this way, kingdom growth seems to be an easy-to-follow, linear and sequential process.
One problem is that’s not how it always works.
A bigger problem is that’s not how it often works best.
If we want to see the kingdom of God grow rapidly we need to expect and even encourage non-sequential growth.
- Have you ever seen a new believer multiply quickly?
- What things do we do that actually slow or stop this from happening intentionally or unintentionally?
