Real Discipleship

“We don’t like getting involved in other people’s problems. Our own problems are messy enough – why complicate things by taking on other people’s junk? But the reason is simple: God calls us to help other people… You are called to encourage, challenge, and help the other Christians in your life, and they are called to do the same for you. If you wait until all of your own issues are gone before helping others, it will never happen. This is a trap that millions have fallen into, not realizing that our own sanctification happens as we minister to others.”

– Francis Chan, Multiply
