It has been the third year since we entered into disciple making movement. Some people thought that there was not much of difference. Some thought there was not much progress. Some people stood around and wait, do not know what to do. Entering into 2018, our slogan is “Turn your whole family around to be saved”. In fact, we have to use the principles of DMM before we can effectively lead family members to Christ. Let me share the real principles of DMM.
DMM gospel work mainly use Luke 10 as an entrance (Luke 10:1-11)
1. Actively attack
“He told them, “The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field. Go! I am sending you out like lambs among wolves.” (Luke 10:2-3) God sent you to spread the gospel to every family member. Therefore, we have to take our responsibility and actively spread the gospel.
2. Blessing and peace
“When you enter a house, first say, ‘Peace to this house.’ If someone who promotes peace is there, your peace will rest on them; if not, it will return to you.” (Luke 10:5-6) We have to use our identity of people of peace to bring blessing to family members, an attitude of blessing is very important.
3. Walk with those that response
“Stay there, eating and drinking whatever they give you, for the worker deserves his wages. Do not move around from house to house.” (Luke 10:7) If one family member response well, you have to follow up closely.
4. Have to heal family members
“Heal the sick who are there and tell them, ‘The kingdom of God has come near to you.’ (Luke 10:9). Many times a family will have a broken wound (in the heart). We should not add oil on fire but be a prince of peace. We have to pray for the sick, whether it is physical illness or spiritually sick, we have to ask God to heal them. Therefore, we have to take healing course, pray for family members so that they will be healed and problem of the soul/spirit is released.
5. Establish the altar
We can establish an altar with two or three people, to bless the family. “Again, truly I tell you that if two of you on earth agree about anything they ask for, it will be done for them by my Father in heaven. For where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them.” (Matthew 18:19-20)
I hope you will try hard, everyone spreads the gospel and every family builds an altar. May God bless you. Amen!
