I am reading Transforming Discipleship: Making disciples a few at a time by Greg Ogden. We have been developing this thought for training leaders in our church. We want intentional leadership not mass produced in a classroom.
Small groups and one on one develop disciples in a stronger way.
But it is a decision to become a disciple.
“The seeking ones must become the submitted ones. The bold line between ‘Come and see’ and ‘Come and follow’ must be crossed.
I want to submit to the Master Teacher. I must choose to follow. This must be our determination as a church. We need apprentices!
