We cannot lead others where we have not been. Therefore, we must seek to know Truth through God's revelation. II Timothy3:16-17 instructs us, "All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting, and training in righteousness, so that the servant of god maybe thoroughly equipped to every good work." Disciples will study to do their best to unashamedly present themselves as ones who can correctly handle the word of Truth. (II Timthy2:15) Truth that leads and transforms. That is why we are committed to DIscipleship Groups and small group studies, an integral part of every maturing believer.
Colossians2 :6-7 speaks to discipleship when it says,"So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live your lives in him, rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness.
