Discipleship has been on my heart for the last 3 years. I believe God woke me up to this through a lot of the books I had been reading. One of the books talked about Multiplication of disciples and if we trained 2 disciples who discipled others each year it would be around 6 billion in 30 years. I thought that would be a really cool legacy to have since I was 33 at the time to shoot for. Over the last couple of years that has been my focus but it is hard to stay focused on the simplicity of that. It seems like not enough, it seems like their should be a better way. But what if we just simplified discipleship to this. It would mean we would have to get rid of many “Good” church things, and things in general, and really focus.
I read through the first 4 of these before I started the challenge and decided to have our discipleship group go through this.. For the last year we have been doing “Discipleship Groups” based off the book by Bob McNabb “Spiritual Multiplication in the Real World.” It has been challenging and encouraging. I really truly believe so many people in the church want more but they are not sure what that more is. So ask some people to try this with you and see if this leads to that more. Try not to just ask the people you think are spiritual but ask those who you think are hungry to learn. Believe me, it might surprise you and also encourage someone as you ask them to live this out with you.
