Top 10 Roadblocks to Discipleship and Mission

“If I’ve heard it once I’ve heard it a thousand times!” We hear the most common excuses, fears, and roadblocks to discipleship and mission over and over. The reason they come up so often is… they must be real. Or at least we think they are.

This week on the Lifeschool Podcast, we’ll share (from our listeners and students) the top 10 roadblocks to discipleship and mission we run into all the time. We’ll discuss what’s really lurking behind each of these, and give you a way around each roadblock.

It can be easy to stay “stuck” and make excuses for why we’re not really engaged in discipleship and mission in our lives. Or not as far along as we’d like to be. But it doesn’t have to stay that way!

In This Episode You’ll Learn:

  • The Top 10 roadblocks to discipleship and mission.
  • What is really behind each of these perceived barriers. (Most are not roadblocks at all!)
  • Diagnostic questions to ask yourself to move beyond each of these.
  • The surprising “roadblock” that smashes most (or all) of the rest!

From this episode:

“Am I living my life, (and teaching my kids, my church and others) that my glory and comfort are really my top priority by how I spend my time and resources? Am I letting my religious traditions guide my spiritual growth– or letting the Holy Spirit guide me deeper into life and community with others for HIS glory?”
