Jesus commanded his disciples to go make more disciples. In other words, they weren’t merely to preach the gospel, lead people to Christ, and then forget about them. They were supposed to train those who accepted Jesus to be disciples — just like them! The question for us is whether or not we are striving to be the disciples God intends for us to be. After all, there is more to Christianity than just being saved.
This study guide is a great resource to aid learning spiritual truth if used correctly. It is intended for small groups of 2-10 people, but can be adapted to larger ones.
The methodology employed in this study is to provoke thought and discussion within the framework of Scripture, thereby teaching the student how to learn and find the answer himself. We believe this is a far better approach to study groups than simply spoon-feeding Scripture.
Therefore, questions and discussion are both encouraged. Don’t feel like you must complete one lesson per week to stay with the program. Take as long as needed to complete each lesson with understanding, because the next lesson will build on the previous one.
Finally, feel free to copy and distribute all of our study guides free of charge. The only restrictions we place on copying are the following:

May God bless you in your studies!
