4) There’s a 50/50 Chance Your Millennial Friends Won’t Share Christ

Why? Because it would just… be… WRONG to do so. At least that’s what a new Barna poll found. In spite of feeling equipped to do so, nearly half of them won’t – because they think it’s wrong to share one’s personal beliefs with someone of a different faith in hopes that they will one day share the same faith. Sounds like they grew up watching Star Trek re-runs and they’re afraid of violating the “Prime Directive” or something. See the Barna summary here…

Not sure how we fix this. Somehow, though, if we’re going to win the world with the help of the upcoming generations, we’ll have to remind them that Jesus gave a prime directive too. And that He’s the one who made them. (Thanks for pointing us to a new story about this, Tim!)

7) New Course Offers Six-session Study on the Great Commission

It’s a six-session study on the Great Commission. For hundreds of years, committed Christians have gone to the ends of the earth in response to our Lord’s command to take the Gospel to everyone… everywhere! Organizers of this course hope that you will be captured by the vision of a world that is increasingly being reached with the Message of the love and forgiveness of Jesus. They pray that you will become men and women of Issachar. More than 3,000 years ago, God raised up a cadre of 200 men and their families, from the tribe of Issachar, to give leadership to His people because they “Understood the times and knew what Israel should do.” Now you can become like they were.

10) “Half-filling” the Great Commission? —

Do you feel like you are only half-filling the Great Commission? You have gone across the room, across the street or across the sea to make and baptize disciples, but now you are trying to fulfill the rest of Christ’s command . . . “teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you.”

Entrust is offering its intensive discipleship training courses (developed in Eastern Europe) on U.S. soil this June and September in Colorado. These are ideal for people who want to fulfill (not half-fill) the Great Commission in the States and around the world. Find out more at…
