God is doing great things in different churches worldwide. The message of discipleship is universal nowadays. Seminars, conferences and programs all around the corner. But at the end of the day, I'm hoping that it will not be all about the numbers (I'm not denying its significance.) and church growth but Honoring God and Making Disciples.
I've been blessed to have some mentors during my student days. Credits to Kuya Nathan and Kuya Mark. Both of them have been so good to me. They were there when I needed prayers. They were there when I needed someone to talk to. I thank them for all the wisdom and advice they gave to me. Those words really helps in building my faith and staying strong. Yes, they have faults. They are not perfect. Still it is great to know that some people took time to invest their lives to me.
That's discipleship. Discipleship is relationship.
Discipleship can be found in small groups, where in our case, we call it LIFE GROUPS. These groups are essential in a way that it helps everyone involved to grow and learn in their Christian journey. Attending church services is great but you cannot experience growth without the fellowship with other believers. You may have questions that can't be answered during big gatherings so it's very important to have someone to help you in one way or another.
So what do we do in LIFE GROUPS? Simple. Study God's Word. Learn. Pray for one another. Share stories. Eat together! It's just doing life together. :)
Go Small. Grow BIG.
