The home: a strategic platform for discipleship

N.C. BAPTIST PODCAST
March 6, 2018

This podcast was recorded at the Disciple-Making Conference breakout session training and focuses on discipleship strategies. At its core, discipleship is walking relationally with another person from one stage of spiritual maturity to the next, from non-Christians seeking answers to mature believers sharing biblical wisdom. From a single person living in a downtown apartment to a mom in the suburbs or an empty nester in a quiet rural setting, each Christian can make an impact for God’s kingdom, no matter the circumstance. Tabatha Frost discusses how to intentionally make the most of every discipleship opportunity God gives, starting with the relationships closest to home.

Here is an excerpt from this podcast:

This applies to whatever stage of life you are in. Whether you live in the town or in the country, it really does apply throughout. What does it mean to make disciples? I think often people are hesitant to say they will make disciples. Because they don’t really understand what it means to make disciples. We define discipleship as walking with another person from one stage [of spiritual maturity] to the next. The time with you should help them look more like Christ. Once you have a good definition of what it means to disciple someone, it takes the fear of doing it out of the equation. Using every opportunity and making the best use of our time is being intentional. Today we are going to talk about spending intentional time with people, having intentional conversations with people, and intentionally praying for and with people. Jesus did all of these things so well, and if we are His disciples, we want to look like Him. Who are the people in your sphere of influence that you could welcome into your home?

Come thou long expected Jesus

I love lyrics. Song lyrics. Poetic lyrics. Storytelling lyrics. Lyrics are oftentimes prayers expressed creatively, musically and authentically. This is certainly true of the Psalms. Far from a random assortment of sentimental journal entries, the Psalms are an arranged body of...
