Discipleship Resources

Jesus said, “Whoever does not carry his own cross and come after me cannot be my disciple.” Jesus patterned for us what discipleship looks like by walking intimately with twelve men, allowing them to see and learn from every aspect of His life. He was transparent before them revealing who He was and His purpose for being with them. His mission was to lead them to His Father and in doing so they would become like Him and accomplish the same purpose He was called to do: to glorify His Father and fulfill His Father’s will. These resources are designed to help us discover and live out this relational discipleship together. Building upon themselves these resources will help you dig into what it means to be His disciple and a member of His body and family. We encourage you to get alongside others and spend time seeking, asking and knocking for a greater revelation of who He is, so that you, like the disciples, will be transformed into His image and bring glory to our Father fulfilling His will.

RD notes

Relational Disciple

Jesus, our example, discipled twelve people by living with them for three years. He modelled discipleship as He lived, walked and ate with them. He taught them through parables and real life object lessons. Kingdom culture is all about walking with God and one another in discipleship.


Love

When we look at scripture, we see a two-sided coin in operation in relation to God’s love. One side has to do with God being love, the source of love and that we are never to separate God from love. The other side has to do with our coming to know and having a deep rooted conviction of God’s love through experiencing the same.


Vision

Vision in the Kingdom of God is Sight. It’s seeing as God sees. Without sight, we are walking blindly. The bible teaches us that without vision the people perish or are unrestrained. One must start with accurate vision or sight (God's), otherwise our primary purpose will be incorrect.


Hearing

The key to vision is hearing. Hearing precedes Seeing. Hearing is the key to faith. What does it mean to truly hear The Word and to walk in the life of the Spirit?


Purpose

The primary purpose of receiving the Word of God through the revelation of the Spirit, is to know God and to know His calling for us. Have you ever asked what God’s primary purpose is for His church and what is the hope of His calling for her?


Oneness

Jesus prayed that all disciples would be one. One with the Him and one another. Oneness of mind, love, spirit and purpose. This oneness is called fellowship and fellowship is of the Spirit, not the natural. We have all been invited to have this fellowship with Him and one another and to walk in the Light as He is in the Light.


Bird's Eye View

We have been granted to know the mysteries of the Kingdom of God and yet, just like His disciples, we at times can find ourselves struggling to hear, see, receive and understand what God is saying in relation to Himself and His purposes for His church. Paul said that God has given us His Spirit so that we may know the things freely given to us by God, which things we also speak, not in words taught by human wisdom, but in those taught by the Spirit.
