Life Together

February 19, 2015

Community is important to us.  We need outlets to connect with other people.  We need people to inspire us.  We need people to help pick us up on crumby days.  Community is innate in us.  We were created for relationships.
Genesis 1:27 tells us that we were created in the image of God, who is himself the definition of a perfect 3 in 1 relationship. (John 1) We crave community, because that is who we are.
I crave community.  I want to be around all types of people.  I want to learn from you.  That is one of the primary reasons I joined Mississippi Women Bloggers, and I would like for relationships to blossom out of this blogging adventure.
Have you ever heard of discipleship?
Discipleship is a term hardly understood.  It is a big word that simply means, “doing life together” for the glory of God.
I am currently mentoring a high school senior.
I am currently in a group of similar aged women.
One thing I’m lacking is a one-on-one relationship with a wiser female. (I so want this, but find myself making excuses for asking a lady I admire to meet with me.)
What’s the purpose of this discipleship stuff?
The purpose of discipleship is to hold each other accountable throughout the week.  It is to help each other grow in our walks with the Lord.  It is to encourage each other, to pray for each other.  It allows us to see that we do not have to pretend to have it all together.  It is a chance to be real with each other, and know how to handle future life situations that come our way.  Discipleship is all for the glory of Christ and walk in obedience to his commands (Matthew 28:18-20).
  • Have you ever been in a discipleship group? 
  • Have you ever mentored someone?
  • Have you ever been mentored by someone older than you?
I would adore the opportunity to hear about your experiences with discipleship.  Let’s grow together.
