Discipleship is important.
But how 'do' you do discipleship?
We aim to help you by finding answers to this question
The 'diamond of discipleship' is a book
Our aim is to help you make disciples
The meaning of this book – and the accessory website platform – is to give a ‘framework’. A map that gives direction. Lines we can think along. Of course the result will be different for every situation, but the underlying ideas are the same.
I invite you to go on a journey. To discover together. To travel back in time until we can look the Master – the disciple maker himself – in the eyes and learn from the way He did it. To be changed in our thought patterns and make solid steps into ways we can live this to the fullest.
I invite you to look at this book that you hold in your hands as a workbook. To turn more pages, go back again, and make notes. To disagree – or maybe totally agree. To add to, apply, and make specific.
The 'top' of the diamond
In "the diamond of discipleship", the top represents the different dominions where we were constructed as human beings. The most tangible dominion is of course the physical – we are humans of flesh and blood. But we are much more than that. We are spiritual beings.
Someone said that we have a hole in ourselves that can only be filled by God, and more specifically, by His son Jesus. We are spiritual. And in this list also belongs the emotional and educational or rational dimension.
In part 2, we will discuss these different dominions
- The Spiritual dimension
- The Emotional dimension
- The Physical dimension
- The Rational dimension
