Robert Mulholland defined discipleship simply as “being transformed in the image of Christ for the sake of others.” This flow of videos and questions is designed to help put you in a position where you can be transformed in the image of Christ. Take your time with this one, permanent inward change is usually done consistently over time – there is no rush. We even recommend going back and rewatching the videos multiple times. Take the time to be self-aware and self-reflect on what God is saying to you through this flow.
At the end of each lesson you will find a “quiz,” now don’t be frightened by that word, there are no grades and right or wrong answers, this just gives you an opportunity to think through the content on a deeper level. So take your time and honest and thoughtful with your responses.
Before you begin, think through these questions:
How would you define discipleship?
What practices have you conducted to place yourself in the position of being transformed?
Have you ever tried to be transformed on your own? What happened? How did it work out?
Have you seen God transform you? What were the circumstances and how did that work out?
The idea behind discipleship isn’t to keep it to ourselves, but for the sake of others. We do discipleship for others. As we begin this discipleship flow, be thinking and praying of someone that you can take through this series after you have completed it. In fact, we recommend that after each lesson you take some time to teach it to someone else. By teaching the lesson, it helps solidify it in our hearts and minds.
