The Power of Perspective P1: Making Disciples

Perspective is an extremely powerful tool! In our community, we value perspective very highly because it has the potential to reveal truth. One of the great gifts that we have as humans and even kingdom people is the ability to focus on an idea or goal in a way that causes it to become very influential in the earth. But along with this gift, there is an equally great pitfall that accompanies it; we can lose perspective. We can become tunnel visioned, ignoring the greater goal that Holy Spirit is leading us towards and pointing us to. If perspective is a revealer of truth, then we must seek it out, we must surround ourselves with people that can provide it, and we must allow its voice to have weight in our lives from time to time. Since we are kingdom people, let’s realign our life with some kingdom perspectives!

Perspective #1:  Mathew 28: 18-20 NLT Jesus came and told his disciples, “I have been given all authority in heaven and on earth. Therefore, go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. Teach these new disciples to obey all the commands I have given you. And be sure of this: I am with you always, even to the end of the age.”

Ok, let’s get some perspective. Jesus is killed, is dead for three days, rises from the dead, and has one message, some of His last words to His brothers… and He says what? Let’s let truth reveal itself to us. Jesus put’s His entire life, death, and resurrection into perspective by commanding His followers to MAKE DISCIPLES.  Does that hit you in the chest like it does me? It’s very interesting the perspective that this truth brings. It forces us to reckon with the course and values of our lives. It forces us to put a heavenly priority on the things we hold valuable and important. And most importantly, it demands that we answer this question, “Am I discipling world changers for the Kingdom?”

Many are asking for more power, more finances, more influence and more favor. We hear it and see it in the songs we sing, we see it online, and in social media. But I believe that if we align ourselves with God’s heart for the planet, we’ll see an explosion of power, influence, and favor like the world has never seen.
