Discipleship needs to be intentional and organic. Intentional, meaning that we should be focused on leading, following, teaching and learning from one another our entire lives. Organic, meaning that discipleship happens while doing life together. This is how children learn from parents, going through the good, the hard and sometimes the unpleasant together. This is our model for discipleship, doing life together.
Until the Lord grows us to the point that life groups are needed, the church will continue to be the life of the group.
