Discipleship – Summary
Colossians 1:28 AMP
Him we preach and proclaim, warning and admonishing everyone and instructing everyone in all wisdom (comprehensive insight into the ways and purposes of God), that we may present every person mature (full-grown, fully initiated, complete, and perfect) in Christ (the Anointed One).
Discipleship is about developing the whole person. It’s about knowing God, and growing to a point where you can confidently make Him known to others.
“Disciples” are the point of discipleship. Ongoing maturity is a major evidence of discipleship.
Another major of evidence of discipleship, is when disciples begin to produce disciples. Disciples are the offspring of disciples.
Discipleship is aiming for at least three major outcomes, there are many other aspects as well, but here are three –
– spiritual maturity
– spiritual fruitfulness
– spiritual productivity
Pray for us as we endeavor to encourage this process along in our world.
