A D.M. is a Worshipper

A Disciple-Maker is a worshipper.  The goal of disciplemaking is not perpetuating yet another code of religious ethics but rather to help young believers learn to worship the Lord in Spirit and in truth.  Although I love the strategy part of winning the world for Christ that is not the purpose of disciplemaking.  Put simply, we are to share the love of Christ to those who don’t know Him.  Then we are to help those young believers grow in their ability to walk with the Lord and help others walk with the Lord.

This morning I read an interesting account of the nation of Israel’s encounter with God on Mount Sinai in and around the time of the giving of the 10 commandments.  Notice that the people drew back and Moses drew near, that is the essential difference of the worshipper.  The worshipper is drawn to the object of his worship while the person just looking for a religious experience will draw back.

18Now when all the people saw the thunder and the flashes of lightning and the sound of the trumpet and the mountain smoking, the people were afraid [46] and trembled, and they stood far off 19and said to Moses, “You speak to us, and we will listen; but do not let God speak to us, lest we die.” 20Moses said to the people, “Do not fear, for God has come to test you, that the fear of him may be before you, that you may not sin.” 21The people stood far off, while Moses drew near to the thick darkness where God was.

    When you draw near, He says He will come in and comunicate with you.
    Me and My Father will come and have Fellowship with you. I would be near
    than far far away.
    IN HIS GRIP
