KFC goes to extreme measures to hide their original recipe. At their world headquarters in Louisville, somewhere in their legal department, the secret recipe is hidden within a large walk-in safe. Only ONE person in the world knows the combination. Only TWO people in the world know the combination of 11 herbs and spices. Yeah, thatís extreme.
When it comes to multiplication, we too have a secret recipe. Itís not locked in a vault, but hidden in our prayer closet. Itís in the secret place of prayer, where we align our hearts with the one who said to his disciples; The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send workers into his harvest field.†(Matthew 9:37-38 NIV). Jesus understood that we face an enemy hell-bent on preventing His kingdom from spreading.†
During this 40-Day Prayer Challenge, ask the Lord of the harvest to raise up†at least ONE of your disciples to disciple another. And join me in praying that will have 2,000 engaged in the Way of Discipleship in 2017 and 10,000 by 2020. Imagine what would happen if none of us dropped the baton of multiplication. The Way of Discipleship isnít just a way for each of us to grow in the ways of Jesus, itís the seed of multiplication for Grace Church. When disciples multiply disciples, leaders multiply leaders, groups multiply groups, ministries multiply ministries, campuses multiply campuses, and churches multiply churches. When you multiply your life, you can change the world!
