Key Scripture: 2 Timothy 2:2 “And the things you have heard me say in the presence of many witnesses entrust to reliable people who will also be qualified to teach others.”
I spent many years of my life not knowing how to be a faithful, obedient follower of Christ—in other words, a disciple. Before coming to Richland Creek, I had never really heard the word disciple, unless it was in the context of the disciples in the Bible. Nor had I realized I was called to be just like them—a learner, an imitator of Jesus. My life was devoted to a church, not to the Lord. It was very clear to me how different my life would have been had I been discipled early in my spiritual walk. Everything from my marriage, to finances, to how I raised my children would have been different if I had been a faithful imitator of Christ.
By God’s grace, a group of leaders in the Women Equipping Women Discipleship group began discipling me, and I began to grow in my relationship with God. For the first time, I was getting to know God personally. Over time, I had a desire to imitate Christ, to follow Him, to glorify Him, and to grow in Christ-likeness.
Once I began growing in my relationship with Christ, I realized I wanted to share what I was learning with others. I wanted to be a disciple who makes disciples. My heart’s desire is to see others discipled so they too can “taste and see that the Lord is good” (Psalm 34:8), and then share what they have learned with others. I still love being discipled. My time of learning is such a sweet time with the Lord and with those He has placed in my life to teach and guide me in my walk with Him. Have you ever considered being taught the fundamental disciplines of spiritual growth and disciple-making?
We would love to show you how. Simply call the church office or request to connect with a discipleship leader at
Questions to Consider:
Are you a faithful imitator of the Master Teacher? If not, why? Are you fulfilling Christ’s command in Matthew 28:18-20 to make disciples?
