Discover, Develop, and Deploy Disciples

Every member of the church has been called to discipleship. In this message to the 2013 SEND Conference, Dhati Lewis offers his own family's example as a challenge to deep engagement in discipleship.

Matthew 4:18-20 (ESV)

Jesus Calls the First Disciples

18While walking by the Sea of Galilee, he saw two brothers, Simon (who is called Peter) and Andrew his brother, casting a net into the sea, for they were fishermen.19And he said to them, “Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men.”20Immediately they left their nets and followed him.

How do you normally engage in discipleship? Do you do it at all? How much time and energy do you commit to those you serve in this way, and do you feel that what you give is adequate?

Dhati said we need to think about discipleship as an intersection, and not an addition. What does this statement mean to you?

The Great Commission calls every one of us to take part in discipleship. You may not be able to move people in to your home, but you can certainly share your Christian life and maturity with other believers. Let Dhati's great example be a challenge to you and look to fulfill your unique part in the church's mission to build each other up.
