3 Questions that put the responsibility of discipleship back on the shoulders of the disciple

Here is another one of my “take-aways” from a coaching call to a great pastor in Canada. The discussion was about discipleship and how best to do it with a balance between our responsibility and theirs. We came up with three questions to ask the person we’re trying to disciple:

1) What does your ideal relationship with Jesus look like to you?

2) How close are you willing to get to that ideal?

And then at a follow up meeting ask:

3) Have you been moving towards your ideal, away from your ideal, or are you in the same place you were the last time we met?
