Missional Disciples

I like what Alan Hirsch said in "Missional Misgivings" today in Out of Ur. We are failing at producing real, in love with Jesus, Christ followers. I am increasingly concerned about how easily we trade one religious model for another. We have steped away from seeker frienldy only to become super seeker friendly. Admiration of Jesus is good, but it must give way to devotion. The Christian life is not about churchs and programs and methedology or even about the people we may reach - its about Jesus.
"Genuine fruitfulness, surely, cannot simply be measured by numbers but by 'making disciples.' How does one measure that? By all accounts, current churches are made up largely of admirers of Jesus but few genuine disciples/followers—this is not a biblical idea of fruitfulness!" - Alan Hisch
