What Is Disciple Making?

What Is Disciple Making?

Daniel Asbun:

What does this mean? How is someone in Moreland, Georgia supposed to make disciples of all nations? Unfortunately disciple making is regarded as an eight-week study filling in the missing word. Dietrich Bonhoeffer wrote, “Discipleship isn’t an offer that man makes to Christ.”

Nothing concerns me more than when we make The Great Commission into an 8 week course. It’s a lifestyle, not a class.

The best way to see revival and change in America is the return to discipleship. Investing in others, teaching them biblical truths and expecting them to reproduce will establish a growing army of Christ-followers.

This is exactly what I’ve been saying for years.
