Discipleship is a buzzword in Christian circles nowadays. I remember hearing it for the first time my freshman year of college and thinking to myself… “Discipleship? Should I know what that means?” Not only did I not know what discipleship meant, I also did not know that it would be the catalyst of my relationship with Jesus.
Discipleship means something different to everyone because everyone’s experience is different. In my experience, discipleship is an intentional friendship with another believer who is one step ahead of you in your faith. It could be in a group or one-on-one. By intentional friendship I mean meeting together often, usually weekly, to do life together and get into God’s Word. Discipleship doesn’t always look like going to a coffee shop and reading scripture, it could be going grocery shopping with a family, observing interactions and discussing scripture in the car.
