A Disciple is Strong

After appealing for qualities such as courage, willingness to suffer, and faithfulness, Paul borrowed images from daily life to illustrate the traits necessary for effective service: a teacher (2:1–2), a soldier (2:3–4), an athlete (2:5), and a farmer (2:6). Paul concludes with the certainty of rewards (2:11-13) as incentives for effectiveness. Next Step: Join a group – DMD relationships provide a place of accountability for growth as disciple makers.
