“He Went On”
Help us, God, to do what Jesus did. Help us always to focus both on (1) teaching disciples so that we can be effective and mature in our living and serving and (2) going on to the people who still need to be introduced to your love and grace.
Protect us from taking an “either/or” approach to ministry; help us to take a “both/and” approach to ministry.
Lead us to learn of and from Jesus through prayer, Bible study, and conversations with fellow disciples; lead us also to take what we learn to people who need to be introduced to the one of and from whom we are learning so much.
“Now when Jesus had finished instructing his twelve disciples, he went on from there to teach and proclaim his message in their cities.” (Matthew 11:1)
