What will it take to change the world?

While teaching at a seminary in Cape Haitian,Haiti, I asked the young seminarians, What will it take to change Haiti?  The youngest member of the class responded, When those who profess to be Christian, live like one.  

His answer is relevant to all cultures.  The goal of discipleship is Christ-likeness.  When we DWJWD, do what Jesus would do, the chances are strong that others will see in us something they wish to possess for themselves.

Discipleship is the key to Christlikeness and Christlikeness is the ultimate goal of discipleship. An intentional, systematic approach to discipleship training pays tremendous dividends.  The likelihood of changing the world is greatly increased when believers are intentionally discipled.
