CO2 and making disciples (2)

Over the years, I've been in (and led) dozens of classes on disciplemaking. Almost all were designed to teach people to know about God.

  • Here's your Discipleship Notebook...
  • Read these passages of Scripture
  • Memorize these verses
  • Fill in the blanks
  • Complete these assignments
  • Pray this prayer

A "church of two" is different.

It's designed to teach people to know God. To have an intimate, conversational relationship with Him. It's very simple really. Day in and day out it goes like this... "Here's what the Lord is saying to me today. What's He saying to you?" Disciples of Jesus learn to listen by listening (and obeying) ... day after day. Everything else flows from that... study... worship... family... mission... everything.

As disciples, this (listening) is what we do. And, when we disciple someone else, this is what we teach them to do.

Jesus: "My sheep are continually listening (present tense) to my voice; I know them, and they follow me." -John 10:27

What have you learned about listening to His voice in your CO2?
