Enjoy Life's Journey By Engaging In The Process Of Seeing People Made Complete In Christ

But I hope in the Lord Jesus to send Timothy to you shortly, so that I also may be encouraged when I learn of your condition. For I have no one else of kindred spirit who will genuinely be concerned for your welfare. Philippians 2:19-20

Effects Of Following His Steps

There are few things that fire me up more than seeing believers maturing in Christ and watching them take steps of growth in their ability to minister in His name. When you see Christians not only getting the picture of "making disciples of all the nations," but actually taking an active role in the process, life on this side of eternity gets pretty exciting. Anytime theory becomes actual reality, the kingdom of Christ advances, and God is glorified.

When we experience camaraderie in Christ with other believers who are genuinely concerned with the welfare and spiritual growth of other people, there is a synergism that takes place as like-minded hearts resonate with the Lord who reigns as their King. Paul highlights this "one souled" experience of being kindred spirits with Timothy. By sharing the same passion for Christ, His Gospel, and the maturity of His people, Paul and Timothy experienced the like-mindedness that creates an ideal partnership. This is some of the sweetest fruit of a personal disciple-making ministry.

What began for Timothy with an invitation from Paul (Acts 16:1-3), developed with investment, and flourished with involvement in the continuing of Christ's disciple-making ministry. I am sure Paul couldn't help but smile when the Spirit of God had him pen Philippians 2:19-20. After all, the mission of Christ was moving forward, just like Christ modeled and commanded (Matt. 28:18-20). This special joy is ours as well when we share in the disciple making process of helping people realize their full potential in Christ. Enjoy life's journey by engaging in the process of seeing people made complete in Christ (Col. 1:28-29).
