We so easily tell people how to be Christians, but we don’t always show them how to be Christians. It is easy to tell people how to be a Christian, but to live like a Christian and to show that to a person, that my friend is not so easy.
How can we show people if we don’t life, eat, play, pray, and coffee with them? We need to spend time with people to show them what it means to be a Christian, or what it means to be a follower of Jesus Christ. We need to build relationships with people in the proses we will start disciple a person and this will lead to a transformation in a person’s life. (Relationship. Discipleship, and Transformation)
We only need to focus on relationship, the discipleship will follow the relationship and transformation will follow discipleship. If we look at the Bible we find this model in Luke 10. Here Jesus sends the 72 other disciples out. We need to go out and find the person of peace and then we need to stay with that person, we need to meet their needs. We need to pray for their sick and heal them only after this Jesus told, then we can tell the people about Him.
So go into the town, workplace, village, closed country, find the man or women of peace, stay with them and eat their food, (Relationship) meet their need and pray for them, (discipleship). Then after this tell them about Jesus (Transformation).
