The Nature of Discipleship

Jesus’ relationship with his disciples helps us to understand what Jesus means in the Great Commission when he calls the church to make disciples.  Jesus nurtures his disciples in the context of a relationship, through teaching and by providing an example of how they were to live.  Jesus example is a model for elders in their discipleship of those under their care as well as all Christians who are called to disciple others.

Read Matthew 4:18-22
