FOUNDATION SIX: What is Discipleship?
How did it go declaring truth over your life last week? What changed? What else did God ask you to do in response to last week’s foundation?
Do you ever wonder why Jesus didn’t hold Sunday services, conferences, or become a televangelist? It’s because Jesus knew in his three years of ministry, discipleship would achieve so much more. He knew investing in a few who were hungry for God, obedient, and teachable really could change the world. In the same way, if we will commit to being wholehearted disciples who invest in a few, we can see our world transformed.
