The Definition of Motivation for the Disciple-Maker

Motivation is often a missing factor.

The key themes are:

  • Humble dependence upon God is our primary motivation.

I am going to send you what my Father has promised; but stay in the city until you have been clothed with power from on high. Luke 24:49

  • An experiential faith is the heartbeat of the New Testament and our motivation for being disciple-makers.

So, as the Holy Spirit says: "Today if you hear his voice, do not harden your hearts..." Hebrews 3:7-8

  • A ministry partner is a powerful motivation. The people of God belong to each other in a unique sense.

Greet Priscilla and Aquila, my fellow workers in Christ Jesus. Romans 16:3
