Discepleship

"Jesus grew in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and man." Luke 2:52
Biblical Discipleship
The early church understood discipleship as a learning of the whole life.  Teachers would educate, model, and encourage their disciples in the way to live.  Discipleship was more than lecture-based concepts, it was a way of living.
Riverside Church encourages this style of discipleship-based living.  We gather on Sundays to worship the King and to receive the word of the Lord.  Worship is an element of discipleship, but it is not discipleship alone.  Discipleship is in the day-to-day living with like minded believers.  Discipleship is found in Deut. 6:4, it's our whole life and it begins at home.

 

Starts at home
For many families, we expect the church to provide the service of discipleship.  It is true that discipleship is a key function of the church.  Church is first and foremost a place for us to give (sacrifice: time, talent, tithe) and worship, as a community, the King of Kings.  Discipleship as education is the second function of the church.  Thus, church discipleship is reinforcing the principles being taught in the home.
Question:  How are you being discipled?  Who is discipling your children?

 

3-peat
Concept-based learning is vital to understanding the big concepts of God.  Repitition & Meditation are lost arts of Discipleship and Spiritual Formation.  Judith Lingenfelter's book, "Teaching Cross-Culturally" emphasizes the crucial importance for repitition-based learning.
Question:  What are you memorizing?

 

Remember: Discipleship is more than a class, it's a way of life!

Be Discipled, Disciple Others.
