A BIBLICAL

DISCIPLESHIP PROCESS

LESSON3

slide3

Who are you informally discipling or influencing in your life right now, and what does that process look like with that person?

slide4

Biblical Discipleship is an intentional, relational process where we encounter God together and experience the ministry of His Holy Spirit in order to –

  • grow

in a more intimate relationship with God,

  • reinforce

Biblical truth,

  • become

more like Christin our character, values,

beliefs and actions,

  • remove

the obstacles in our relationships with God and others.

slide5

Premise #1 - We are all broken in some areas of our lives and searching for wholeness.

  • brokenness in all areas of life – with

God, others, and creation.

  • We’re all in this together!
  • disciple others with God’s heart,

which reflects mercy, understanding,

grace and love.

slide6

We know that people often search for wholeness by looking for significance, value and love from sources that cannot satisfy them, which leaves them broken and still searching.

slide7

Premise #2 - Hiding is a fallen human reaction. We have a tendency to try to hide our brokenness and blame our failures on others.

“The woman was convinced. The fruit looked so fresh and delicious, and it would make her so wise! So she ate some of the fruit.She also gave

some to her husband, who was with her. Then he ate it, too. At that moment, their eyes were opened, and they suddenly felt shame at their nakedness. So they strung fig leaves together around their hips to cover themselves.”

slide9
“Toward evening they heard the Lord God walking about in the garden, so they hid themselves among the trees. The Lord God called to Adam, ‘Where are you?’ He replied, ‘I heard you, so I hid. I wasafraid because I was naked.’ ‘Who told you that you were naked?’ the Lord God asked. ‘Have you eaten the fruit I commanded you not to eat?’ ‘Yes,’ Adam admitted, ‘but it was the woman you gave me who brought me the fruit, and I ate it.’ (blame) Then the Lord God asked the woman, ‘How could you do such a thing?’ ‘The serpent tricked me,’ she replied. ‘That’s why I ate it.’” (blame)

Genesis 3:6-13 (NLT)

Premise #2 - Hiding is a fallen human reaction. We have a tendency to try and hide our brokenness and blame our failures on others.

shame

  • (vs.8)

hiding

  • (vs.10)

Adam hid - afraid

  • (vs.12)

Adam blamed Eve

  • (vs.13)

Eve blamed Satan

slide11

In life, we all make mistakes and often experience shame, guilt, fear, and failure.

So we commonly try to hide, wear masks, condemn, reject, or blame others in order to protect ourselves.

slide12

Premise #3 - God is at work in all of us.

We are looking for how we can cooperate with Him as we disciple others.

  • God began the good work and He will complete it.
  • God gives you the desire to obey Him

and the power to do what pleases Him.

  • so everyone sees the power

is from God and not us.

slide13

We often lose sight of where God is at work, and we try to do the work for Him. We are much more successful when we join God where He is working. By doing this, He receives the glory due His name.

slide14

Premise #4 - We are in a process, either moving toward the Lord or away from Him. As disciplers, we want to affirm moving toward Him.

Premise #4 - We are in a process, either moving toward the Lord or away from Him. As disciplers, we want to affirm moving toward Him.

  • (vs.9)

keep growing in the knowledge and

understanding of the Lord.

  • (vs.10)

understand what really matters - pure and

blameless lives until Christ returns.

  • (vs.11)

bring praise and glory

to God

slide16

God loves and accepts us, even when we are moving away from Him. We can do the same with others. We can walk with them, pray with them, and encourage them to move toward God and follow Him.

slide17

“Just as a would-be disciple today begins a relationship with Jesus with a host of half-truths, misguided thoughts, and lies, so did the Twelve. These interactions are intended to unmask and confront those attitudes and values that are not in line with Jesus’ kingdom perspective. For the disciples these were gut-check times, when they had to assess the cost and commitment necessary to identify with Jesus. They had their cherished assumptions and worldviews challenged at the core.”

Transforming Discipleship

slide18
Which of these four key aspects from a Biblical Discipleship process do you need to focus on in your own life at this time and why?
  • grow in a more intimate relationship with God
  • reinforce Biblical truth
  • become more like Christ in our character, values,

beliefs and actions

  • remove the obstacles in our relationships with

God and others

slide19
