Our Biblical Priorities
I think we can all agree that we have four main biblical priorities.
Number One is found in Acts 1:8 where we are told to be witnesses into all the world.
Number Two, I think we could agree that this is the Church Age described in Acts 9:31 where churches are multiplied. That is a biblical priority in this time period.
Number Three is that according to 2nd Peter 3 :18 that each believer should grow in grace and become Christ like.
Number Four would be found in 1 Corinthians 10:31 where it says that our lives are to bring glory to God, whatever we do and everything about us is to be for God's glory.
Now what I have seen is all these biblical priorities can be tied together by one simple, but profound activity. That activity is one on one discipleship. When you are trying to reach people with the Gospel you are performing that priority. Once they receive Christ you want to incorporate them into the local Church so that they can grow and become Christ-like. The way they can grow in grace is to be discipled personally, and fed to grow in the Word of God. According to John chapter 14, this activity of multiplying disciples brings glory to God.
So our biblical priorities can be summed up in those four areas, and they can all be tied together by one activity of multiplying disciples one on one.
