Discipleship

What is discipleship? What does it look like? How do you do it? How long? What is the goal? How do you know you’ve reached that goal?

  1. Discipleship is like raising kids. You are a pro at that buddy! At first they are helpless and need milk. Then they start to learn to feed themselves. How do they learn to do the “chainsaw laugh”? They watch you. They mimic you. They do what you do? 2 Tim. 1:13 – we must show them the pattern. (2 Tim. 2:2 – and then show them how to teach it to others who teach it to others). New believers will do what they see being done. We must do more than tell them what to do, we must do as Jesus did, show them. Jesus took 12 uneducated, unimpressive, but obedient and teachable men. Then he said, “come follow me.” It took the master teacher 3 years to get his disciples off “the bottle” (Hb. 6-7) of spiritual milk to where they could feed themselves. Eleven of those spiritual babies started a movement that continues to change the world. With whom did Jesus spend most of his time? Rather than trying to disciple the masses, we need to start focusing on a few obedient ones. Our Great Commission says, “Go and make disciples baptizing them….and TEACHING THEM TO OBEY everything I have commanded…” What is the milk our disciples need? What is the key principle that our disciples must learn? Obedience. Without obedience, all is lost.
