Question to Consider
- Read Colossians 1:28-29. Who were the people that proclaimed Christ to you; who admonished or corrected you, and taught you with all wisdom to help you become complete in Christ? Who have you helped along the way? What are some of the current opportunities God is giving you today?
- Read 1 John 2:12-14. There is a time to be a child and a time to grow up as a Christian. What are some of the disciplines and helps you needed to grow in your faith? As you look over the Christian Discipleship questionnaire, what are some of the areas you need further instruction or encouragement in following?
- Read 1 Thessalonians 2:1-12. What are some of the best practices you have learned in helping others grow in their faith?
