A Resource From Youth Ministry Resources
One of the things that often missing from the Adult Bible Study Curriculum that is out there and from the church in general is discipleship. We are great at evangelism and sharing the Gospel but discipleship is so much more than that. Discipleship is the long term relationships that we build with others in order to train them in being a follower of Christ. In that relationship we also model for them what it looks like to be a follower of Christ. This is not only what we are called to do but it is also what Jesus modeled for us while He was on earth. Yes He reached out to thousands of people while on earth but most of HIs time was devoted into investing in 12 people. We need to remember this model. As we teach our Adult Bible Study Curriculum we need to do more than just share the Gospel or teach. We need to build relationships with others and train them in what it means to be a follower of Christ. Then they can turn around and do the same. It does take more commitment on our part but it is necessary.
