Discipling for Christ

Christ discipled those who followed Him and they learned from Him how to make disciples of others. He taught them how to have a missions lifestyle.

Who are the people you remember discipling you? I remember my Girls’ Auxiliary (now Girls in Action) leader and the WMU director from the church where I grew up. The missions education I received from them has expanded for decades and resulted in me starting an Acteens program at my current church.

For others, it also began with missions education as a child. At a recent state WMU meeting, my pastor recalled his Sunbeams (now Mission Friends) and Royal Ambassadors leaders and how they inspired his life. At another church in my city, I have a friend who has been a RA leader for more than 50 years.

Each of these leaders discipled others and developed personal relationships with them and at times gave his or her all to lead young people to Christ. These leaders gave of themselves to go and make disciples who would teach others a missions lifestyle.

How are you making disciples for Christ? Are you giving of yourself for Him? Who are you teaching to have a missions lifestyle?
