Three Benefits Of Discipleship

Three Benefits Of Discipleship

MinistryFeeds:

Paul tells us in Titus 2:3 that the older women in the church should teach what is good and train the younger women. They are to equip other women in how to walk in step with the truth of the gospel. And this isn’t a suggestion — it is God’s instruction for how we should relate to one another.

This is Discipleship 101. It’s yet another proof that we need each other. We can’t obey the commands in Titus 2 without being willing to be discipled (and being available and willing to disciple others!).

At Brainerd, we use Sunday Bible Study to form the discipleship relationships.  The process should repeat itself through multiplication. It’s ironic that we spend so much time and effort trying to train new believers, but Jesus already gave us the model. Every D-Group is a “Train The Trainer” class.
