Before Jesus ascended into heaven, He left the disciples (and us) with a mission–to make disciples. Pastor Robby Gallaty offers compelling evidence that we are struggling to be effective in discipling others. In “Rediscovering Discipleship), Gallaty provides a step-by-step process for effective discipleship that will help us be successful in our mission of making disciples.
Gallaty offers something for everyone. Some chapters will mean more to pastors while others will benefit laymen. Two of my favorite chapters are “Think like a Hebrew” and “A Picture is worth a thousand words”. These chapters help us relate to the Bible in a way that will enrich not only our Bible reading and study, but it will also help us share what we’ve learned with others in a way that will help them be better Christians and better disciples as well.
Discipling someone takes time and commitment. We must be willing, as followers of Christ, to sacrifice our time for the benefit of someone else. We should also be willing to be mentored and discipled by someone else.
If you are passionate about discipleship, “Rediscovering Discipleship” is a must-read. Gallaty offers a section on how to start a discipleship group, how to measure its effectiveness and how to maintain it. The Appendix contains some very informative answers to frequently asked questions.
