Does God have a Quality Control Test?
Okay, so… let’s say Jesus actually came to your church. Like any serious business CEO, Jesus has a minimum product specification requirement. The question is – do we as God’s QC Managers use it in our ministries? (Ephesians 4:11-16)
Is Your Church a “body” builder? Programs are good, but only so far as they contribute to the overall growth and maturity of the saints in your church. Jesus only cares about healthy members of the body, building one another into maturity in Christ.
Jesus gave us His Final Specs: Mature Disciples – baptised, instructed, trained and equipped. “Teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you.” (Matthew 28:18-19)
Healthy things reproduce themselves. Disciples make disciples. If your church is not reproducing disciples, perhaps you should ask God what is blocking your discipleship process?

As the Leaders and shepherds of God’s people, we will give account to God for the QUALITY CONTROL we help Him achieve .
