Discipleship: video

Found this awesome video on the Forge America website. Thought it was killer and keeps in the theme of discipleship.

The Disciple Maker

I once heard it said that "discipleship is like one beggar telling another beggar where to find bread."

That statement is huge for me and here is why; its humble. The beauty of that statement is not that the disciple maker is polished, it is that he has the answer that sustains life. The disciple maker is not a person of importance or authority, higher rank, or wealth. The disciple maker is weathered by life, on the same level and willing to teach the things he knows to the next guy. Discipleship bleeds humility. Disciple making looks as if we are equal in life only separated by maturity spiritually, with a willingness to lead in a way in which I hope you surpass me.
(I do apologize if that thought was confusing and incomplete but that is as best as I can communicate it right now. It is raw and fresh in my mind and you just got it.)

James 4:10 reads as follows: "Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will lift you up."

I want to lead out humbly making disciples. That is my prayer.
