What is a Disciple? “Fishers of Men”

Acts 2:42-47, 1 Corinthians 12:12-27

In the same way that we need to be pouring into others, it is also important that we have others pouring into us. The mission to make disciples is not an exclusively individual effort.

Jesus never intended, nor does He want, any of us to go it alone. His design is making disciples
together. Church really is a team sport. His mission is best accomplished when we do it together
(Real-Life Discipleship Training Manual, 38).

The mission of Jesus is a big task! Just as Christ is the one who makes us fishers of men, he puts other Christians around us to encourage, teach, and pour into us.
