Disciple-making can be intimidating. You might think that someone who makes disciples has to be a teacher, a missionary, or someone who is seminary trained. Would it surprise you to know that disciple-making is just a lifestyle?
When a tree takes root, it’s not long before the action is mirrored above ground. New branches shoot out. Green, healthy leaves appear. Even the trunk grows sturdier, more storm-resistant. Because of the roots, the tree becomes firm and fruitful.
“Rooted and built up in Him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness.” Colossians 2:7 When a tree takes root, burrowing deep into the soil, it’s not long before the action is mirrored above ground.
When a tree takes root, adds strength, and branches out, it’s not long before fruit appears. And so it is with you. As you choose to root your life in Christ, you’ll become not only stronger but also more fruitful.
