Dynamics of Effective Discipleship
As the disciples followed Jesus, they learned by watching Him, listening to Him, imitating Him, making mistakes, studying the Scriptures in light of His instruction, asking questions, and so on.
I. Effective Discipleship Is Marked by a Positive Team Approach (Acts 20:1-6)
Let’s focus for a moment on Paul’s model of discipleship. As was his custom, he got together with the disciples at Ephesus and encouraged them.
We also need to realize that we can be much more effective at being and making disciples if we will get together as a team and encourage one another.
II. Effective Discipleship Is Marked by a Sense of Spiritual Community (Acts 20:7)
They realized that they needed one another and they needed the ministry that would take place as they interacted together.
III. Effective Discipleship Calls for a Complete Trust in God (Acts 20:8-12)
He just ran down and embraced the young man, and with complete and total confidence in God, he offered reassurance to those around him that everything was okay.
The more you know Jesus, the more reason you will have to trust Him in every area of your life.
