From Here To There
Jesus said, “I have come that they might have life and have it to the full.” From those words, we get our marching orders to pursue being fully alive in Jesus. But how do we get there? There are six key components every Christian encounters on the path to being fully alive in Jesus. Without any one of these, the mission falters. The follower of Jesus needs to worship, grow, connect, serve, influence, and share. In this series we will do some healthy analysis and, in combination with Biblical teaching, provide the necessary resources for further growth, with the goal of worshiping authentically, growing intentionally, connecting regularly, serving faithfully, influencing purposefully, and sharing generously.
STEP 1 -TAKE DISCIPLESHIP MAP ASSESSMENT
Before proceeding with your discipleship journey, download the form below, please print it out, and complete the assessment by marking it manually with a pen or pencil. As you examine the picture in front of you, each circle at the end of the path represents a strong grasp of each discipline. Place yourself in the middle "you are here" circle. Use the smaller tick marks to plot a dot that marks your personal grasp of each discipline. The closer your plotted dot to the outer circle, the greater your grasp is of that particular discipline, and the resources you look at will be under "Excel". The closer your plotted dot to the "you are here" circle, the greater support to "explore" on your journey.
Use the benchmarks of "explore" (beginner), "expand" (intermediate), and "excel" (advanced), to evaluate where you are.
STEP 2 - DEVELOP YOUR DISCIPLESHIP PLAN
Once you see where your plotted dots land on each path, connect the dots with a pen or pencil. When you are done, examine the shape created and determine where you can use support in your journey. In the example below, this person could use support exploring "worshiping authentically", and "connecting regularly". This person might also want to expand on "serving faithfully" and so on.
Next, fill out the discipleship plan based on your areas of potential growth identified on your discipleship map. To assist you in filling out the objectives of your plan, click on the circle below you've identified as your first place of growth for resources. Begin looking at resources in Explore - as you want to dive more deeply, take a look at Expand and Excel.
