Discipleship: No Man Left Behind
Jesus knew that the most meaningful change takes place in the context of small group relationships-men sharpening men with truth, encouraging each other for the daily battle, and sticking with each other over the long haul.
The Varnville First Baptist men got together a few years ago and held a small group book study, where a new focus on discipleship was established. In Patrick Morley's book, No Man Left Behind, it was these ideas of how a samll group could be established and maintained.
The goal of Christian service should be to make (create, capture, sustain disciples.) God wants to bring men to full maturity in Christ. Making small groups a core value can create momentum to get you where you want to go.
