Timothy, my dear son, be strong through the grace that God gives you in Christ Jesus. You have heard me teach things that have been confirmed by many reliable witnesses. Now teach these truths to other trustworthy people who will be able to pass them on to others. – 2 Timothy 2:1-2
One of our core Next Steps at Crossroads is to enter into a discipleship relationship with one of our leaders. For Crossroads, Discipleship is all about integrating scripture with life through committed community. This looks like:
Commitment to a weekly meeting
Sharing of life stories within group
Immersion in and study of the scriptures
Following Discipleship leader in serving others
Discipleship is an incredibly organic, life on life experience and is also a very intentional experience if wish to be a disciple and then see our disciples then disciple others. It is not for the faint of heart. It is a decision to do as the early disciples did and that is to follow the calling of a Godly leader. Men following men. Women following women. Couples following couples.
