Helping someone progressively learn the Word.If we look at the Great Commission closely in Matthew 28:19-20 we see that being a disciple commands discipleship. Discipleship is the process of "making disciples." We, as believers and followers of Christ, are commanded to "go make disciples"...to reproduce the faith...reproduce the process of Gather, Grow, Go, and Give. It is the process Jesus used in His ministry.Gather - He gathered a group of 12Grow - He taught them insight into the Word by walking through life with them and applying Truth. Life on Life.Go - He sent them out into their areas of influence to gather others.Give - He asked them to give all their resources (their very lives) to further the Kingdom.Too many people want to stay in the "growing" and learning phase. Which is great! We are always learning and growing in Christ. It is a lifelong process. But we are not called to just grow in knowledge of Him.We are called to "go."
