Find all my discipleship training plans here. Feel free to use or adjust these plans however you see fit.
To learn more about this series, see the introductory post: Discipleship Training and The Lost Art of Disciple Making (LeRoy Eims).
Discipleship Training #17: Perseverance and Assurance. How can I be sure that I have salvation? Perseverance offers God’s objective promises, while assurance gives us the subjective confidence of the indwelling Holy Spirit.
Discipleship Training #16: Adoption and Saving Faith. Not only are we justified legally, but we are adopted as God’s children relationally, and counted heirs with Christ. All this comes by saving, justifying faith in Christ alone.
Discipleship Training #15: Adoption and Saving Faith. Not only are we justified legally, but we are adopted as God’s children relationally, and counted heirs with Christ. All this comes by saving, justifying faith in Christ alone.
Discipleship Training #14: Justification. How do we find forgiveness of sins? How are we made righteous in Christ? What role does faith play in our justification? Do our works play any role in our justification?
Discipleship Training #13: Free Will and Effectual Calling. What does it mean that we choose freely, and yet our will is in bondage? How do we find freedom from our slavery to sin through the power of the Holy Spirit?
Discipleship Training #12: The Work of Christ (Part 3). How do we gain the benefits of Christ’s mediation? What is the work of the Holy Spirit in uniting us to Christ? How is the work of redemption a work of all three persons of the Trinity?
Discipleship Training #11: The Work of Christ (Part 2). What is Christ’s estate of exaltation? Why is Christ’s estate of exaltation necessary for our salvation? What has already happened, what is happening now, and what are we still awaiting?
Discipleship Training #10: The Work of Christ (Part 1). What do Christ’s anointed offices as Prophet, Priest, and King teach us about his work? Why did Christ have to humble himself to accomplish our salvation?
Discipleship Training #9: The Person of Christ. What do we mean when we confess that Jesus Christ is fully God and fully human? What did God send his Son into this world to be to us as our Mediator?
Discipleship Training #8: God’s Covenant with Man. What is a covenant, and why are covenants so important? What is the difference between God’s covenant with his people in the Old and New Testaments?
Discipleship Training #7: Sin. How did humankind fall from the good world that God created? What lingering effects does the corruption of our original sin have? How do we fight sin by repentance and faith?
Discipleship Training #6: Providence. How does God preserve and govern all his creatures, and all their actions? How does God’s providence relate to “natural” causes for events, and even to sin?
Discipleship Training #5: Creation. What does God tell us about creation? How do Genesis 1 and Genesis 2 fit together? How should we respond to God’s marvelous work of creation?
Discipleship Training #4: Is God actually sovereign over the salvation of people? Does he predestine some to life, and foreordain others to condemnation? Here is what the Bible teaches on this “high mystery.”
Discipleship Training #3: Who is God? What does it mean that our one God exists as three Persons? How do the three Persons relate to each other? How do we relate to our one God in his three Persons?
Discipleship Training #2: If the Bible is God’s breathed-out word, what should we do with it? Suggested resources for reading, studying, meditating, applying, and memorizing the Bible.
Discipleship Training #1: What is the Bible? Why is the Bible so important? What makes the Bible different from other books in the world? Christian discipleship requires us to understand the nature of the Bible.
I love that The Lost Art of Disciple Making by LeRoy Eims offers a clear plan for training disciples. As a pastor, here is my suggestion for how to adjust Eims’s plan to offer a more robust vision of the church.
