Discipleship 101

June 16, 2017

Discipleship is not that hard. There are books and seminars which may be helpful. Basically it’s one person teaching another person what they know, so they can teach it to others.

We’ve all been discipled. Someone taught us how to ride a bike. Someone taught us algebra. Someone taught us to study the Bible. Someone taught us to be polite.

We’ve had many disciplers in our lives. Many have taught us different things.

And we are able to teach those skills to our children, our students, and our friends.

That’s what discipleship is.

Paul challenged Timothy to do that, giving a four-generation picture in 2 Timothy 2:

You then, my child, be strengthened by the grace that is in Christ Jesus, and what you have heard from me in the presence of many witnesses entrust to faithful men, who will be able to teach others also (2 Timothy 2:1-2).

Paul was the first generation, who taught Timothy.

Timothy was to teach faithful men, who then would teach others.

Four generations being trained to live righteous lives, how to conduct themselves in godliness.

Time. Energy. Patience. Love. Strength. That’s what it takes to be a discipler. And if you don’t think you’ve got enough of any of those, then find a student to disciple. You’ll grow at the same time.
