The goal of discipling is for someone else to become just like you. It is not the same as teaching. Serving is not glamorous. The church exists to worship, and disciples exist to make it happen without distraction. We are trained to demonstrate the kingdom. Be bold and do the Word wherever you are- Costco or Walmart. Disciples need to be teachable, learning from their masters or leaders. To be a witness means laying down your life. The disciples had to wait for the Holy Spirit. Elisha had to stick closely to Elijah. Real disciples do not quit but endure to the end. Disciples ask a lot of questions. They will work for free or pay to work. They are going someplace. They are part of a team. They do what they are supposed to do. They demonstrate the kingdom of God. When Jesus comes, what will you be doing? Disciples are chosen on purpose. They will get the work done. Do the ministry. Other Scriptures: Matthew 28:18-20; 1 Corinthians 11:1; Romans13:11– 14:4.
