Discipleship is such a foundational part of the World Race, but here’s the thing, discipleship doesn’t just start and end in 3, 6, 9, or 11 months. Instead, it’s a journey that often begins on the World Race, and blooms over a lifetime.
So what is discipleship?
Discipleship is part of our call as Christians to point each other to Christ and to encourage and exhort one another. (Hebrews 10:24) It’s the beautiful and sometimes messy process of pointing people to Jesus and helping them to rely on the Holy Spirit’s guidance.
Discipleship is an integral part of Kingdom life and the heartbeat of what we do here at the Race.
But do you ever wonder if maybe you aren’t qualified or don’t have what it takes to disciple others?
Here’s the truth: you don’t need special training or to have all the answers.
Discipleship isn’t about being a perfect example. It’s about walking through life together and pursuing Jesus every chance we get.
But don’t worry if you’re not sure what this looks like. You’ll have amazing leaders on your Race who are committed to teaching you how to live out discipleship in your daily life so that you can carry what you discover on the Race into the rest of your life.
