Doug this is very interesting news and a huge challenge for the church to become involved in setting a guideline for helping others disciple one another. I know from my own experience until christians embrace the spiritual disciplines in the christian life there will not be any spiritual growth in individuals. I have attached a word document that I created from the book "So you want to be like Christ" it outlines some of the disciplines that are crucial in our lives. I hope you and others enjoy.

I've heard somewhere (and it may have been Professor Howard Hendricks) that success is when your disciple does for someone else what you did for them.

Recently returned from The Cove, Billy Graham's Evangelistic Association's Retreat Center and was exposed to the excellent teaching of Richard Blackaby.  Here is a relevant comment on the topic of success.  He said that we in the West often measure success by attendance, but the true measure of success is men and women who are set free from bondage and are transformed by the Spirit of God. 

 

In other words, success is in the hands of God and we merely are to be channels through which His grace, love, and truth flow.  We must trust, press on in knowing Him, proclaim and persevere.
