An important component of disciple making is self-feeding. Self-feeding refers to items that must be evident in our lives if we are to become disciples worth reproducing. We should be producers not just consumers.
Every believer should be self-feeding. We need to make sure that we aren’t viewing our Sunday church service as the time to be fed spiritually – and not doing anything on our own the other days of the week. The purpose of the leaders in our church, according to Ephesians 4:11-12, is to equip us for ministry not to feed us.
