Have you ever really “intentioned” to make disciples and focus your life on God’s mission and his glory, rather than your plans for your own glory? If that’s your hope and intention, but you’re not taking action, it’s procrastination.

This week on the Lifeschool Podcast, we’ll talk about what leads to procrastination in our lives and how procrastination kills discipleship and mission.

If you’re feeling that life has just gotten in the way of discipleship… even when it comes to your own family, spouse and kids, the lack of motivation to change that may be coming from several underlying causes.

In This Episode You’ll Learn:

  • The 3 major underlying causes of procrastination.
  • Examples of what procrastination looks like in discipleship and missional living.
  • How you may actually be procrastinating in trusting God.
  • Ways the gospel speaks to this issue and how to get “unstuck.”

Get started here…

From this episode:

“Be honest with yourself when it comes to understanding if you have ever really intentioned to live a lifestyle of discipleship and mission. It may not be procrastination you’re suffering from; it could be that the gospel you understand, and live in light of, is too small and is primarily about your personal happiness.”
