Discipleship Training

But the Lord said to him, “Go, for he is a chosen vessel of Mine to bear My name before Gentiles, kings, and the children of Israel.  For I will show him how many things he must suffer for My name’s sake.” 

Acts 9:15-16 (NKJV)

 

. . . that you may be worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing him, being faithful in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God. 

Colossians 1:10 (NKJV)

Learning about our Lord and Savior from the study of the Bible is incredibly important and essential! They are the primary and best means for our church to disciple its people in God’s precepts so our people can learn and grow in their walk with Christ. All Christians who are serious about their faith should disciple. 

  

How do I Become a Disciple?

We all are called to make disciples! There are only two kinds of people who cannot disciple, and that is one who is not a follower of Christ and/or one who disobeys God’s command and refuses to disciple.

 

Five Misconceptions of Discipleship

 

1.  Discipleship takes place when people attend church programs.

FACT: Much good teaching can take place during church, but it is often too general and not targeted to the special needs of a new Christian.

2.  Discipleship just happens.

FACT:  We must go counter cultural and instruct others personally and lovingly the ways of Christ. We need to ask the hard questions and get involved into the process of why they do things.

3.  Discipleship is only for new Christians.

Fact: Discipleship is a process that should be occurring all through our lives. A disciple always follows his master's life. Once a disciple, always a disciple.

4.  Discipleship is a program.

FACT:  Discipleship is a lifestyle. We are Christ's disciples and this Christian life calls us to learn and live like Him. This will require significant changes in the way we think and live.

5.  Discipleship is only for certain parts of our lives.

FACT: Christ wants to teach us in each aspect of our lives from our parenting skills to handling finances. This differs from some cults which will actually make your decisions for you!  Mentoring is a term that describes the training of a person in one or more specific areas.

 

God continues to bless our Discipleship Training efforts!
