Missional Axioms

If you’re looking for simplicity in communication of your vision or pithy things to add to the twitter-verse, it doesn’t get any simpler or pithier than David DeVries Six Word Lessons to Discover Missional Living. 100 short statements about what missional living looks like. Each statement includes a one page explanation. Some of these make you think, start conversations, and keep you coming back to them. Here’s a few of my favorites:

  • Love others like Jesus loves you.
  • The outcome of disciple making is disciple makers.
  • Don’t start services, start making disciples.
  • Mission starts in my zip code.
  • Every believer is sent on mission.
  • Loving your neighbor requires knowing them.
  • Gospel living is show and tell.
  • Church isn’t a destination, it’s a people.
  • Your character development precedes ministry accomplishment.
  • God’s “well done” is worth it.
