Before David Platt gives his final challenge, there will be a conversation between Francis Chan, David Platt, and Todd Proctor. Todd Proctor is moderating. He is beginning with a word of prayer.
A number of items are discussed:
- Depending on the power of God rather than over-thinking or over-planning making disciples.
- How the Lord has placed believers in specific situations – certain jobs, hobbies, etc. – in order to share the gospel. This is how these people are most likely to be reached, and this is God’s design.
- The intersection of community and mission – they are not mutually exclusive.
- The Multiply Material
David is now talking about the possibility that each person participating in the Gathering might make at least one disciple in the coming year.
The Challenge: We want to challenge one another tonight to make a list of people God has put in your life that you can carry out this command in their life. Who is the person you know who doesn’t know Christ who you could share with? Who is the believer you know who doesn’t have making disciples on their radar? Who could you pour into?
Make a list of people you’re asking God to help you with in terms of making disciples. Write down specific names.
Francis is encouraging people to pray in faith with the names that have been listed. He is asking God to work in the hearts of those who have been written down, that believers might have the courage to share the gospel. And to believe God in the midst of seeking to make disciples.
Closing song in response: “Song of Moses”
