Discipleship Program?

Words like Jumbo Shrimp..... or government efficiency (lol) dont seem like they go together. Well, in my opinion the words discipleship and program are the same way!

I know many churches who have such "programs" and I know their heart is well intentioned. But because they are "programs" they are destined to fail. Maybe not at first, but eventually they will fail. Why? Because they are programs! Programs have a way of being cyclical. They are full of excitement at first...then they get grow tired...and then end up with people wondering what's the real purpose.

Discipleship really should be a lifestyle. Isn't true discipleship:

1) Following Jesus?
2) Fellowship with other believers?

3) Telling others about Jesus?

The best discipleship manual is your life. Discipleship works if you understand what discipleship really is all about.

Matthew 28:19-20

19 Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”
