Here is an excerpt from Francis Chan’s latest sharing…
I am very excited about some writing projects I am currently working on. One in particular is a discipleship project I am creating with David Platt. We have both been deeply concerned with the fact that so few who attend church services are obeying the great commission and making disciples. We are working on creating a free resource that would equip all lay people to make disciples. I believe deeply that the future of the church in America depends largely in all believers doing the work of discipleship and placing less of a burden on paid staff. I believe our best days are ahead.
One thing that I have been thanking God for lately is how much enjoyment I am finding in prayer, study of His Word, and telling others about Christ. It has been little about discipline and work, and more about desire. It is great to be in a season like this.
