Tom Bandy wrote, “We have made many church members but not many disciples.” Jesus called people, though, to become His disciples. Another word for disciple is “follower” or “imitator.” It is the process of turning people into the salt of the earth, people who genuinely demonstrate Jesus Christ in their daily lives. The church leadership can use these tools to help believers to think like Christ, talk like Christ, believe like Christ, and look like Christ! Through discipleship “Christ invisibly in you” can become “Christ visibly outside of you!”
