Justin Buzzard has a great post about the practical side of discipling new believers. We too often use the language of discipleship but rarely do it well. Buzzard lays outs some keys to the ways he disciples new believers and Bible study is central to that. Relationship is also key and I love his definition of the discipleship.
“Discipleship is truth transferred through relationship.”
Let it sink in. Discipleship is part of the pulpit ministry. It is central to our small groups. But overall it is about relationship. It is about sharing space and life. To disciple well we must be willing to be in relationship, not casually but wholly.
