I’m guessing that some of my readers don’t know what a record is. A record is a vinyl disk used to play music before the invention of cassettes and CDs. When the record was scratched, the needle on the record player would skip. When it skipped backwards, the player would repeat the same thing over and over again, until someone stopped it.
I want to be a broken record.
You see, there are alot of important things in this work and in my life as a follower of Jesus Christ. But, if it is most important to make disciples and be discipled, then I want to be a broken record asking people, “Are you making disciples? Are you being discipled?”
If the person cannot answer, “Yes,” to these questions and if they cannot point out specific people who are discipling them and who they are discipling, then there’s something wrong. So, I will encourage them to build discipling relationships. And, the next time I see them, I will ask, “Are you making disciples? Are you being discipled?”
I think, eventually, the people who know me will understand how important I think discipleship is. Or… they’ll get tired of hanging around me.
