WRITTEN ASSIGNMENT: SPHERES AND STAGES OF DISCIPLESHIP ASSIGNMENT INSTRUCTIONS
As we see in the Gospels, discipleship is somewhat sequential. The disciples of Jesus accepted who He was, then they began to follow, then He gave them responsibilities, then they came back, and He taught them more, then they entered a new stage of discipleship. Eventually Jesus left and they carried on in the power of the Holy Spirit.
