Discipleship in Action (DiA) – the vision

I have a vision with Harvest Field.  Maybe that’s obvious.  Our mission is to help people to know Jesus Christ through small-group, individual, and online studies so that they can not only come into a faith relationship with our Lord and Savior, but so that they also can become dedicated, fruit-producing disciples that glorify our Lord and help bring others to Him.

 

Since Harvest Field has started, we’ve tried several different approaches and curriculum, but we’ve always been seeking the same goal.  The goal that the Lord gave me when I was first called.  Some of the things that we’ve tried have worked rather well, like the at home studies using the DFD material from NavPress.  Others have crashed and burned before they even got off the ground, like the short lived BibleX study that we offered online.  The successes and failures of each study, each curriculum, and each setting have taught me an awful a lot.  A lot about what exactly it was that I’m trying to do, and how, with the Lord, we are going to do it.

Beat my breast before the Lord

Often times I think that we, the Church, do more to push people away from Jesus than anything else that this world has to offer.  We often put ourselves in high positions, so sure of our own salvation, but then put heavy yokes on others that they can’t possibly bear.  We wallow in our self righteousness and drown others in our judgement.  We spend so much time convincing ourselves and others that we aren’t sinners, but somehow forget that it was the sinners that Jesus came to save.

Go

I realized that I have not posted here in a long time.  A lot has happened since I last updated this site.  I’ve changed because He’s changed me.  I’ve become more focused because He has given me direction.  I’ve dedicated myself to making disciples because that’s the one thing that He has asked us to do.  I’ve been doing a lot of reflecting lately in light of the election and other major events going on in my life and I realize just how much people will attach to the Gospel.  Just how much of our own agenda we marry to Christianity.  The simple truth is: Jesus doesn’t care about our political affiliations or personal finances.  He didn’t tell us to hold ice cream socials and New Years parties.  He’s not impressed by the church with the coolest Christmas special.  He has asked us to make disciples.  This age will end and the only thing he requires of us as His followers is to tell as many people about Him – to make as many disciples as possible – before He returns.
