We serve God by following Him, not by designing a project that we can do to see if we can get His approval when the project is complete. We follow Him by find out where He is working and joining Him. This is not complicated. He is looking for disciples to serve Him by making disciples.
In this short clip from Session 1 of the Missions Dilemma, Steve Hawthorne challenges us to not create projects and ask God to bless them, but to follow Jesus by finding out where He is working and joining Him.
“Follow me… Jesus is saying that instead of us trying to get Him to come into our life, if we will follow Him and not serve Him by making up a bunch of projects…. Find out what He is doing and join Him and follow Jesus in it.” – Steve Hawthorne
