Discipleship

 

Biblical discipling is the art of shaping the life of an individual into growing partnership with God. It begins with assurance of salvation through the acceptance of the Gospel, and then continues integrating Christ's lordship into every area of daily life.

A disciple is one who walks with, learns from, and lives in submission to a master in order to become like the master.

Stewardship described through discipleship is, therefore, the lifestyle of one who has a living relationship with Jesus Christ, accepts His lordship, walks with God, and works in partnership with Him, acting as His agent to manage His affairs on earth.
