Intentionally living through discipleship

Hey everyone!! It is good to be back to blogging. I know I was not very present on the older blog but some of you really liked the stuff I had written. So I hope that continues with this revamp of our blog.

 

So to start off I want to give you guys a snap shot of some of the stuff I will be writing about. If you have not seen any of our other posts, go read them when you are done here. Here at The Snead Tribe we are all about intentional living. Some of you may be asking what that is, again go read Jo’s post from last Tuesday, but we all have a little different idea of what it is. All in all everything that I write will relate back to living an intentional lifestyle.

 

”   Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”

Matthew 28:19-20

 

This is what I want to commit my life to. I know this verse is over used in the church today, but after being in a discipleship group for a little over a month, it has taken on a new meaning. It is not just about going and evangelizing to groups that have not heard of Jesus or going out on the streets of your local neighborhood; it is so much more than that. Matthew 28:19-20 means   building deep, meaningful relationships with people. Jesus only had a congregation of 120 (small in comparison to most churches today), and rather than spending his time with many he spent most of his time on earth with 12 men, and of those 12 he chose three men to really pour into.

 

So what does this look like in my life? Well, first off it looks like me getting to know God better. It also means I need to be working to continually strengthen what I already have with the people in my life, whether that be my wife, my son or friends. Finally, it looks like me pouring my life into small groups of men so that they may go and pour their lives into other men and so on, thus making disciples of all nations.

 

I hope this gives you a brief insight into what you might find on my post in the blog, and what I really think intentional living is all about. So keep an eye out for future post about being a Christ follower, husband, dad, disciple…the list goes on and on.

 

Until next time,

Dustin
