165: This is What Will Keep You From Living On Mission

It is hard to sustain a missional lifestyle! Things get messy, and I start to wear out. Personal preferences and old habits creep back in to destroy things. And it’s not like life is getting any less busy.

Today on the Lifeschool Podcast, you’ll find out what is really messing you up and keeping you from living on mission.

In many ways, this ongoing life on mission with God is a call to die to self. It begins by simplifying your life as God rearranges your priorities, and you spend more and more of your time living with God’s mission at the center of your life.

In This Episode You’ll Learn:

  • A traditional and classic definition of “true discipleship”.
  • 10 things in your life that may need to be put on the altar.
  • How leading your family on mission as a way of life needs to start in your heart.
  • A funny story from Caesar’s life that hilariously illustrates a process for breaking old habits.
  • Practical steps for removing the clutter and idols that keep us from living on mission.

From this episode:

“Ask God to show you things you may need to “die to” as well as new attitudes and rhythms you need to embrace. This is an important step, but it doesn’t happen overnight. You’ve got to start by counting the cost of discipleship before heading out into open waters.”
