As I’m trying to follow Jesus, you follow me; that’s discipleship.

Jim Yost in Papua, Indonesia, asks the question, “What does our city need?” Jim continues, “Whether you feel qualified or not qualified, you become incarnational into the needs of your city. You look. You ask questions. You discern what are the needs; what’s going on? What are the problem areas? What is exploding right now? And then Jehovah Jireh comes in and gives you everything you need to be able to make an impact. It’s not about having a whole lot of knowledge and expertise, but it’s about the heart. Everything begins with the heart.” Jim talks about examples from his life, helping jail inmates, helping refugees, assisting those who are in the business of prostitution, those who have a propensity to addiction… getting involved in the lives of hurting people. Jim explains, “Freely you’ve been given, freely give it away, meaning, the little bit you’ve been given by God, you give it away to somebody else immediately.” Jim asks, “If your church were to close this week, would your city miss you?” Jim teaches people to discover truth though Discovery Bible learning. Jim concludes, “When you talk about meeting the needs of the broken people in your city, the problem people, you’re releasing them to move forward and bring someone else along with them.”
