Proper theology informs our posture (or attitude) and our posture influences how we approach and execute any activity for the Lord.
How is it that receiving the "Good News" with joy could be the description of someone who disowns or falls away when pressure and prosections come because of the word?
I propose to you that the Gospel is received with joy when there is no funeral to self.
Discipleship means growth. (Ephesians 4:11-13)
Discipleship is also familiar growth in fellowship with Believers. (Ephesians 4:1-6, John 17:21, I Corinthians 1:10) Our goal is to grow together as we grow together.
Discipleship is sharing life. (1 Thessalonians 2:8)
3 DESCRIPTORS OF CHRIST-CENTERED RELATIONSHIPS THAT FACILITATE MULTI-GENERATIONAL DISCIPLESHIP
1. Make intentional connections — initiate connections and breathe life into existing connections. (Matthew 28:18-20)
2. Make meaningful connections — intentionally discover who the other person is. Be organic and create healthy connectons for Christ. (Matthew 4:19)
3. Make purposeful connections — making the sight of Christ desirable. (Galations 4:18)
