How would you define discipleship? How can you tell if someone is a disciple or not? Too often we make discipleship about knowledge.
Discipleship is not about knowledge– it’s about character, behavior, attitudes, a posture of humility and teachability. Knowledge may be a building block, but it’s not enough on its own. By itself, knowledge puffs up (1 Corinthians 8:1).
The real test of discipleship is the degree to which we live out what we do know to be true. Add “to godliness, mutual affection; and to mutual affection, love. For if you possess these qualities in increasing measure, they will keep you from being ineffective and unproductive in your knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ” (2 Peter 1:7-8).
Consider your own ministry. How do you help people gain discipleship knowledge? How do you help people practice discipleship behavior?
The Discipleship Difference lays out an intentional, holistic, and relational approach to discipleship that is individualized to meet each person wherever they are.
