Making disciples and sharing good news can feel difficult, even impossible, for many ordinary Jesus followers. What if God had actually designed us to do this, but we go about it in a way that makes it much harder to do. On today’s episode, Cynthia talks with Jessie Cruikshank, a neuro-scientist about how our brains are already wired for the journey of transformation and how it’s actually a lot easier than we think!
Key Points from this episode:
- God is good and He has designed us in such a way that we can do what He commanded us to do- make disciples.
- Trying harder doesn’t work well. Instead we need to start with identity.
- Stories are easy for the brain to absorb and bring transformation of our minds.
- We need to be ourselves as disciple-makers and discover how to do it in a way that reflects our unique gifts and personality.
- We don’t need to have answers. That is the Holy Spirit’s job to provide answers, we just need to learn to listen to the Holy Spirit.
- God is doing something new, He is bringing us into an age of greater intimacy and depth with Him and a new way of doing church.
