Every follower of Christ is given one great task: to make disciples and see them trained so they too can make disciples. This is Christ’s great plan, and He has no other to build His kingdom.
A MASTER BUILDER
… was a man named Paul. Understanding his calling, he was one of the most effective disciplers and church builders in the early church. Most of the New Testament, besides the four Gospels, was written by Paul.
In Acts 20, Paul said his farewell to the leaders in Ephesus. He had come to this city, made disciples, raised leaders, and planted a church over three years. In his last encounter with the Ephesians Elders, he summarizes his ministry. This detailed account gives us a pattern for all of us to follow. It is a master class on ministry.
20 LEADERSHIP LESSONS
Regardless of where God places or you, follow these twenty instructions, relying always on God’s Spirit. By God’s grace, you will hear a “Well done” from the Father at the end of your journey!
Father, thank You for the examples given by godly men and women. Give us grace to be faithfully to the end, regardless of the sufferings we might endure. Help us settle our purpose to testify solemnly to everyone of the gospel of Your grace.

Christ is sufficient. In every way, in every circumstance, in every location, Christ takes care of his own and provides what is needed for the moment.
We may not be in a position to receive it. Our spiritual receiver may be tuned to the wrong channel, but if we are listening and dependent, we will find all we need in Him.
