THE SEVEN STAGES OF DISCIPLESHIP

Step One: John 1; Luke 3 Step Two: John 2-5 Step Three: Luke 4-6 Step Four: Luke 6-9 Step Five: John 6-8 Step Six: Luke 10-19; John 9-12 Step Seven: Luke 20-22, Acts 2,10

A change in one’s life after he trusts Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord Once that change becomes a reality, the disciple begins learning how his new life in Christ is different As he learns more about what Christ requires of him, the disciple begins getting involved in the mission As the disciple learns and participates in ministry he begins to lead others into the same process Leadership draws opposition and demands a time of testing to prove the true commitment and motives of the disciple Those potential leaders who endure the testing step up and assume leadership roles in the eyes of others as they put into practice decisions they made during the testing times Leadership becomes a lifestyle where the individual is consecrated and equipped to carry out the mission without need of any further discipleship
