Revolution Requirement #8 of 10: Be responsible

Orality Revolution thumbnailWhat does “normal” look like to you? Same routine, same people, same ol’ same ol’ stuff in your life?

The Orality Revolution may one day become the new norm, but as long as there are churches that are not in alignment with making disciple-makers, then the cause continues.

Practicing churches must align with God in praying out workers into the harvest fields of lost or disobedient churches (Luke 10:2).

Once mobilized and trained, the status quo cannot be the same. Priorities shift and change. Time spent in relational discipleship is more intentional; more focused on an outcome.

When Nik Ripken encountered four men in a remote location, he recounts in The Insanity of God, they had one question for him: Are we the last Christians alive? When Nik assured them there were many others, they confessed relief and also said that they didn’t want Christianity dying with them if they were unfaithful. That’s a new level of responsibility. It’ a different game level. It’s a game-changer.

It’s being responsible when nobody else is looking or checking up on you. You are responsible only to God.

About Mark Snowden

TruthSticks originated from the book I co-authored with the late Avery Willis. Truth That Sticks: How to Communicate Velcro Truths in a Teflon World was the book and this blog and Bible studies have resulted. It's great to be partnering with churches who are committed to making disciple-makers. Request a catalog of Bible studies using orality at SnowdenMinistries@gmail.com.
