One of my heroes in the field of discipleship is no other than the founder of The Navigators, Dawson Trotman.
The main emphasis of the discipleship process he has espoused in the lives of believers is the passion for the Word.
For the next three weeks, we will explore the three discipleship marks that John mentioned in the Gospel book that he wrote.
This week, we will focus on the first one…
“To the Jews who had believed him, Jesus said, “If you hold to my teaching, you are really my disciples.”
I believe that the life we have received from God through Christ, causes us to have a desire for learning, and learning leads us to freedom.
The next verse tells us…
“Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.
..a real Christ follower anchors his whole life on God’s Word.
It’s great to be passionate for the Word of God like these men that I know: Ptr. Winston Reyes (the walking concordance), Atty. Banjo Navarro, and many others.
But it’s another thing to impart that same passion to other fellow believers.
Dawson Trotman (1906-1956), did just that.
Now that’s what I call discipleship.
