Thanks for taking a chance on this resource. I hope it is a blessing to you. Within this resource, you will find a series of conversations based on passages that the Relational Discipleship Network uses in order to lay a biblical foundation for why we believe that God has called us to not only make disciples but to make disciples within the context of healthy, flourishing relationships.
Scripture after scripture points to the reality of our need for community and how we should engage within it. Jesus said that the most important commandment is to love God, and the second most important commandment is to love other people as you love yourself. It is within this framework that all other ministries must fall. If it doesn’t, it can never be all that God intends for it to be.
It is with that mindset that this resource is created. My hope is that each day will cause a little pause in your spirit so that you can take time to evaluate your own relationships, help others evaluate theirs, and begin to operate amongst one another from a Godly, biblically aligned place in your own heart. Some of these topics are hard ones like forgiveness and generosity. As you begin this process, please pray for the Lord to be working in your own heart so that you can begin to take hold of God’s biggest dreams for your life.
How to use this resource: There are a few ways to use this resource. First, use it as a daily devotional and meet once a week with your accountability group to discuss what God is doing in your life as you read. Second, use each lesson as a weekly (or daily) chance to get together with someone and discuss the material. That would turn this into a 30-week study, but that is a way to use the resource if you choose. Third, take the person you are discipling and use it as a development resource for them as you meet together. Fourth, as long as it is serving you well, do whatever you would like to with this resource.
From the bottom of my heart, I long for God’s people to experience the freedom and transformation that comes when we get into the kind of relationships God has called us to. May this book be a catalyst for you to experience that kind of relationship in your own life.
