Nuggets from the DMC
I'm sitting in the Scarritt Bennet Conference Center in Nashville, Tennessee talking with 40 of the most humble yet brilliant minds in the area of discipleship and mentoring. It's the Discipleship-Mentoring-Coaching Summit (DMC). I'll blog more extensively about it later, but here are a few nuggets:
- Who do you love so much that you are praying for them every day to become more like Jesus? Who loves you so much that they are praying for you every day to become like Jesus? Who do you love so much that you cannot allow them to continue living the way they are? Who loves you so much that they cannot allow you to continue living as you are? We haven't loved each other enough to tell the truth.
- The younger generation has heard about the love of God but not the fear of the Lord.
- Are we performers or are we prophets?
- There can be no life change without life exchange.
- The more time you spend in front of people, the more time you need to spend alone with God.
- The way you measure fruitfulness is the extent to which you have invested in the 3rd and 4th generations (2 Timothy 2:2)
- The martyrs did not just die for a cause; they died for a person.
- We should not have hope in what we can do but in who He is.
- It is more important to be prophetic than relevant.
