How To Become A Willing Disciple- Courtney Lowman- Episode 147


This is the final episode in a series of episodes where I am addressing topics that have come up as I have discipled women through the years. Today I am talking to both those being discipled and those who are discipling. If you have been around for awhile you have heard me talk about our discipleship tree. In fact We talked in detail about the 3 levels of discipleship in episode 43- The PLAA Process, Finding a Paul, Barnabus, and Timothy. Every Jesus follower needs to have someone discipling or mentoring them. So how can you prepare yourself to be a fruitful disciple? I have 4 things that we must practice if we hope to get the most out of our time with our discipler and L.O.C.K. in the things that we learn as a disciple. This episode would be a great one to pass on to someone that you are discipling so they know what you are expecting of them as you begin meeting together. Or maybe you are looking for someone to disciple…today I am going to give you a list of what to look for in a woman that is ready for discipleship.




LOCK Steps:

Listen

  • Humility- you don’t know it all

    • Luke 14:11- “For all those who exalt themselves will be humbled, and those who humble themselves will be exalted.”

    • Proverbs 11:2- “When pride comes, then comes disgrace, but with humility comes wisdom.”

  • Listen more than you talk

  • Listen to hear, not to respond

Open and Honest

  • Advice cannot be given if all is not known

  • Open to a different perspective

  • Open to correction and encouragement

    • Their correction comes from a place of love, not condemnation

    • 1 Peter 5:5- “In the same way, you who are younger, submit yourselves to your elders. All of you, clothe yourselves with humility toward one another, because, “God opposes the proud but shows favor to the humble.”[a]

    • Romans 12:3- “Do not think of yourself more highly than you ought, but rather think of yourself with sober judgment, in accordance with the faith God has distributed to each of you.”

Committed

  • Willing to Work

    • Not just a place to be heard, expect advice and wisdom

  • Give it the time it needs

    • Both in the length of time you meet and the time it requires for a productive meeting.

    • No distractions as much as possible

Kingdom Focused

  • This time is about preparing you to be a disciple of Christ and a disciple-maker

  • This time is not just about you and your problems although those do come up.
