Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.

Matthew 28:19-20

Something special happens in our recovery walk with Christ. In Christian terms, it’s called discipleship. In recovery, it’s referred to as sponsorship. Both words mean the same thing. Sponsorship happens when people with established time in recovery, who have been applying the Christ-centered 12-Steps to their lives, begin to disciple others in a structured way. Sponsoring others is one of the most rewarding aspects of being in Christ-centered recovery.

Christ called for us to go and make disciples. He did not say to His disciples, “go and make followers,” or “go and convert as many as you can.” Christ had a much bigger plan than simply converting people. He wanted to grow and mature them as well. Christ also understood the mathematics of discipleship. Christ knew that if one of His disciples was to convert 1000 people a week to Christianity, it would take about 32,000 years to convert the entire world. What if we think about it a different way? Let’s have a person discipling someone for one year. After the one year is over, each of those people will then disciple a person. After each year, all those who have ever been discipled will turn around again to disciple a new person. The whole world will be converted to Christianity after 15 years of this trend. This is the genius of Christ’s plan to spread the Good News to every corner of the world.

In recovery, this is how we experience legacy. What was poured into us, through our sponsors, we now pour into the people we sponsor. In recovery, we get to see generations of recovery. The sponsor of our sponsor is our grand-sponsor. The person being sponsored by someone we sponsor is our grand-sponsee. Christ-centered recovery is simply a process that is called for in Scripture, and it is being fulfilled daily. We have the special privilege of seeing the plan for recovery that Christ developed, over 2000 years ago, being worked out in the rooms of miracles today.

Today’s Prayer

Jesus, Thank you for giving us the gift of sponsorship and discipleship. You knew how we should grow people and pour into them and you gave us your plan for reaching the world. Help to provide a long legacy of discipling others in the sponsor relationships we have with our sponsors and with the people we sponsor. Thank you for providing a plan to reach the world. Amen.
