True Discipleship is Born Out of Personal Relationship

True Discipleship is Born Out of Personal Relationship

Wendy Alsup:

Like holistic medicine, which considers the body as a whole, holistic discipleship recognizes that while all believers need overarching biblical truths, some need discipleship that focuses on a particular area of need. One size does not fit all. Therefore, holistic discipleship can’t happen through institutions alone. True discipleship, as Jesus demonstrated with his twelve, is born out of personal relationship.

If you aren’t friends with the folks in your D-group after the 12-18 months is up, you are doing discipleship wrong.
