Iron Sharpens Iron

As your church’s new members are prepared for their future minis- tries, those serving as disciple-makers will function as spiritual role models. Philippians 4:9 says, “Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me—put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you.” This meaningful responsibility normally inspires those serving to focus on their own spiritual development as they seek to be a good example to others. This spiritual apprenticeship process is based on the timeless biblical model described by King Solomon:

“Iron sharpens iron, So one man sharpens another.” (Proverbs 27:17) Scripture’s relational methodology is the dependable path to continued spiritual development. Becoming A Disciple-Maker’s life-to-life training follows that historical pattern. Its rewarding ministry helps equip new church members to “…grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To Him be the glory, both now and to the day of eternity. Amen.” (2 Peter 3:18)
