Our goal is biblical discipleship is to lead people to Jesus, not to ourselves. For too long the church in South Sudan has been promised the Lord, but all they ever get is us! We are making true disciples making them into disciples of Christ Jesus Himself, connecting them to Him.
If their job is done right, they themselves will become unnecessary because the disciples have their own relationship to Him. We may stay connected with those who have so matured but only as brethren and co-laborers for the sake of His gospel.
The ultimate goal of those who are making true disciples is to work themselves out of a job—to lead those they are teaching to a place where they no longer need them because they are growing up in all things into Him.
