“I do not pray for these alone, but also for those who will believe in Me through their word; that they all may be one, as You, Father, are in Me, and I in You; that they also may be one in Us, that the world may believe that you sent Me.” —John 17:20–21
Jesus prayed this prayer for you so that you may become one with Him and the Father through belief in the gospel spread forth by the apostles. The greatest gift received through salvation is the ability to have fellowship with Jesus—to have an intimate relationship with Him. The only way for the transformational power of God to be manifested in your life is through an abiding, intimate relationship with Christ. Unfortunately, faithfully abiding in Christ does not come second nature. That is where discipleship comes in.
Discipleship is God’s design for learning how to become one with Christ and how to live a life that glorifies Him.
Jesus provided a clear model of discipleship through His relationship with the twelve apostles. He walked through life with them for three years, teaching them about the Word of God, living in righteousness, and equipping them to teach others. This devotional workbook has been designed to guide you through your own discipleship process, whether you are being discipled or discipling others. It is perfect for one-on-one discipling, individual study, or a small group.
