Whenever we talk about discipleship and want to learn more, all we need to do is look to the greatest example of Disciple-making Leadership in the Bible. That, of course, is Jesus Christ; so let's see what He has for us in Mark 1:16-20 where He "officially" calls His first disciples.
These thoughts will wrap up the short series about what you should do in living out disciple-making leadership. My focus here will be on PROTECTION.
Thus far in the "what do I do series," we've covered quite a bit of ground. We've talked about purpose, process, outcomes, and plan. What I need to do here is set reality for you; so this will focus on the CHALLENGE of disciple-making leadership.
To make good progress, you need a good PLAN; and Paul offers one for Titus. If there was ever a theme verse for Disciple-making Leadership, then Titus 2:1 is it! Let me produce it below from a couple of different translations and one paraphrase:
If you understand the purpose of disciple-making leadership and have a good process in place, how do you define success? This question is not easy but here are a few thoughts as we turn to OUTCOMES.
Last week, we launched into Titus and covered your PURPOSE in disciple-making leadership. As promised, we will get to a very specific PROCESS that will help you share what you have learned.
