Three Things to Remember About Disciple Making:
1. Witnessing(Go): Teaching someone about personal relationships
1 Peter 4:10: Each one should use whatever gift he has received to serve others, faithfully administering God’s grace in its various forms.
1 Corinthians 9:22 (LB): “Whatever a person is like, I try to find common ground with him so that he will let me tell him about Christ, and let Christ save him.”
2. Mentoring(Make): Teaching someone to do what you do.
When Jesus called the disciples, He said, “Come follow Me, and I will make you fishers of men.”
3. Investing(Teaching obedience): Teaching someone to be what you are, and that is a continual process. It’s not about a small circle of people – it’s about everyone.
