Discipleship is never easy. It’s not something that you are born with.

However, when you are born again, it is something you should plan

on doing.

Discipleship can be as simple as sharing your testimony

with others. Some of us don’t even have a testimony but should.

What were you like before you accepted Jesus as your Savior?

Discipleship can be a trip for someone, other than yourself,

down that “memory lane.” Just be careful not to get too colorful.

If I told others half of what I did and who I was before being saved,

it might turn them away from God or perhaps it could do the opposite.

Who knows your testimony better than you? The thing about a

testimony is that it is yours and no one can dispute it. If you use

your testimony, there is not, or should not be, a lot of memorization

and preparation.

Now, I am not suggesting that you go out into the world without

any other knowledge of God; other than your testimony. A class

in discipleship and participation in your Church’s Bible studies is

always a great idea.

Peter wrote that we are to be able to answer any questions

(1 Peter 3:15) and that is certainly important. There are many

lost souls out there. The harvest is great, but only if we decide

that we want to participate in the harvest itself.

Don’t be like a third-string quarterback who always sits on the

sidelines and watches the game from the bench. Get in there

and score for Jesus.
