Making Disciples Who Make Disciples


Making Disciples Who Make Disciples   Acts 16:1-5 and 2 Timothy 2:1-2


So when Paul talks about the Christian life, it is not a sprint, but a walk . . .
day by day, moment by moment. Someone to walk alongside us . . . to disciple us.

• Barnabas
• Paul
• Timothy

Matthew 4:19 “’Follow me,’ Jesus said, ‘and I will make you fishers of men.’”

• To follow Christ
• To become more like Christ
• To introduce others to Christ

Timothy was a disciple of Paul

As Paul journeyed across the rugged terrain of Asia Minor on his second missionary trip, he chose Timothy to join his team.

Paul came to Derbe and then to Lystra, where the disciple named Timothy lived,
whose mother was a Jewess and a believer, but whose father was a Greek.
The brothers at Lystra and Iconium spoke well of him.
Paul wanted to take him along on the journey (Acts 16:1-3a).

Principle One: A disciple-maker sees potential in his disciple (2 Timothy 1:7).

Principle Three: A disciple-maker models his message (1 Corinthians 11:1).

Principle Five: A disciple-maker really cares (1 Timothy 1:2 and 2 Timothy 1:2; Philippians 2:19-20).

Principle Six: A disciple-maker is faithful (2 Timothy 1:12).

Principle Seven: A disciple-maker makes disciples who make disciples (2 Timothy 2:1-2).
