I've been getting back into running, slowly.
The plan is to run in Run the Bridge in February next year.
If the run was tomorrow I'd be in trouble.
I'm not fit enough
I probably wouldn't make the distance.
I'm not ready.
Sometimes we can impose this thinking in our children's and youth ministry.
Our young people aren't ready...
Jesus says in Matthew 28:19, "go and make disciples"
Not, go do a training course and then make disciples
Not, go and read this book and then make disciples
Not, go to youth group and church and then make disciples
Now, all those things are good and better equip us to make disciples, they have a place.
See your young people as disciple making disciples.
They are disciples in making, not disciples in waiting
