How do you make a disciple?
First and for most in my desire to make disciples is to personally answer this question, “Am I a disciple worth multiplying?” God does not desire to multiply mediocrity. He desires to multiply those who exhibit immediate, radical, costly, obedience. Discipleship is the act and process of modeling and conforming yourself to Christ. I have come to understand that there is no “easy button” to achieve this; to become or make a disciple. It requires reading Scripture more than I ever have before, praying more than I ever have before, and being openly accountable to others in the body more than I ever have been before. How I become or “make” a disciple is simple, but it is not easy. If I am not willing to consistently embrace and model this, then I cannot effectively lead others to become disciples. I cannot lead them to a place I myself am not willing to go. And no program, training, technique or tool, including this 30 day Challenge, I try to use alone can replace lack of obedience. Am I a disciple worth multiplying?
