What Techniques Will We Use?

The Wise Master Builder (Part 25)

If any man builds on this foundation using gold, silver, costly stones, wood, hay or straw, his work will be shown for what it is… (1 Cor 3.12-13)

And now we come to a very tricky component of disciplemaking. Generally, what people are looking for is the “how to” of discipleship; tools, methods and techniques. But one of the problems with consumer Christianity is that the latest spiritual growth fad that promises instant spiritual growth fails to deliver. Unfortunately, after falling victim to a series of these glitzy programs people become suspect and tired (and well they should). This is not to say that we shouldn’t have a plan for disciplemaking (Heb 10.24-25). But it does mean that we need to be wary of any promise for instant spirituality. Our safest methods can be discovered by viewing the principles Jesus modeled in His life and then developing tools for our context. Once we understand the principles they will guide us to meaningful methods. We’ll continue this theme in the next chapters.
