Natural Discipleship, Multiplication Made Easy is the topic that will be discussed today on RIOT Podcast, a Christian Discipleship Podcast
Steve Harris said “There is a great need for Christian ministry resources that will equip followers of Christ to share their faith and make disciples in a natural, relational, conversational and personal way. The most effective kind of evangelism and discipleship is personal.”
It says in Proverbs 20:5 The purposes of a man’s heart are deep waters, but a man of understanding draws them out. The best way to draw out a person’s heart is by asking good questions. There is a great need for Christian ministry resources that are not just presentations, but guided conversations, allowing the participant to share their values and life experiences as the discussions unfold.
There is a need to find an approach that facilitates the opportunity to share your story, my story, and His story. We need to have a way to share face to face over a cup of coffee, at a restaurant during lunch hour, or a zoom call. And today, we get to talk about one of those ways with Natural Discipleship.
There are 9 steps in using Natural Discipleship. Let's discuss what discipling someone looks like.
Step 1: Spiritual Preparation
Step 2: Investing in Relationships
Step 3: Praying for my friends
Step 4: Initiating Spiritual Conversation
Step 5: Sharing my story
Step 6: Sharing his story
Step 7: Deeper Study of the gospel
Step 8: Initial Studies for new believers
Step 9: Inductive Bible Study Method
Mathew 4:19 And he said to them, “Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men.”
* Follow is Relational
* Make is transformational
* Fisher is missional
A disciple is someone who is following Christ, who is being changed by Christ and who is committed to the mission of Christ.
Great Commission in context:
Mathew 28:16-20 Now the eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain to which Jesus had directed them. And when they saw him they worshiped him, but some doubted. And Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age
Lose your life for Jesus:
Luke 9:23-24And he said to all, “If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me. For whoever would save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for my sake will save it.
Love one another:
John 13:34-35 A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another: just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another. By this all people will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.
Receive Power and be witness everywhere:
Acts 1:8 But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.”
