The Bible assures us in Jeremiah 29:11 that God has a wonderful plan for our lives, to
give us a future and a hope. I pray that the Lord will use this discipleship workbook to
help you grow in your understanding of the truths contained in each lesson, and that you
will gain a deeper intimacy with Jesus Christ.
Jesus commissioned the church to make disciples,
"Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the
Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I commanded
you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age." Matthew 28:19-20
A disciple is a student or a learner, one who walks so closely with his master that he
becomes like him in his thinking and behavior. In Matthew 10:25 Jesus told His
disciples, "It is enough for the disciple that he become like his teacher..." We become like our
Master and Teacher, Jesus Christ, by spending time alone with Him, talking to Him in
prayer and listening to Him speak to us in His Word.
In John 15:4 Jesus said, "Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself
unless it abides in the vine, so neither can you unless you abide in Me." To abide means to
have intimacy and unity, to have permanence with Jesus Christ and remain united with
Him in heart, mind and will.
May you grow in the faith, maintain a daily devotional life, abide in Christ throughout the
day and have a victorious life in Him.
Pastor Craig Caster
Was Samson the strongman a real figure in the Bible? The child was born and was named Samson. He grew up to become the strongest man of whom the Bible tells. Samson was no general, like Gideon or Jephthah, to call out his people and lead them in war. He did much to set his people free; but all that he did was by his own strength.
