Discipleship Training Correspondence Instructions
“Follow my example as I follow Christ.”(1 Corinthians 11:1)
1. Be Discipled
“(Jesus) said, “Follow Me, and I will make you fishers of men.” Matthew 4:19
We offer the discipleship training that Jesus modeled in a 3 Book Series, ‘A Journey with Jesus’, which includes all 58 lessons used by Jesus!
Our proposal is a relationship- based approach to personally walk with you through each one of Jesus’ Discipleship Teaching Lessons, via e-mail, by having you:
2. Become Equipped to Make Disciples
"A disciple is not above his teacher, but everyone when he is fully trained will be like his teacher.” Luke 6:40
Be encouraged that Jesus, the Creator of the Universe, did not come to Earth to start a mega church but to invest His truth-filled lessons into the hearts of 12 Disciples, of whom it was later said, “These men turned the world upside down” (Acts 17:6)! It is not the ability of men but God alone who brings the increase (1 Corinthians 3:6).
3. Begin to Make Disciples
“(Jesus) Go therefore and make disciples of all nations . . . teaching them
to observe all that I have commanded you.” Matthew 28:17-20
By this method of disciple making, the model ofJesus, the means of the Words themselves in Jesus’ Commandments and His daily Helper, the Holy Spirit, He gave to us to duplicate, not to re-invent.
Jesus himself said, “Whoever has my commandments and keeps them, he it is who loves me . . . and he who loves me will be loved by my Father” (John 14:14, (21), 23, 15:9-10).
Jesus also said, “Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have the right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city.” Revelation 21:14,
now . . .
“Go . . . Make Disciples” (Matthew 28:17-20), which is our Great Co-Mission with Christ!
