INTRODUCTION 

A ‘Christian disciple’ is a person who accepted Jesus Christ as his/her Saviour and Lord, who continues to learn from Him, and assists in the spread of the Good-News of Jesus Christ; while ‘Christian discipleship’ is the process by which disciples grow in the knowledge of Jesus Christ. In this study, it is also used for referring to the body of Christ. God's presence in humans produces essential qualities that are not natural to them. Such godly qualities make it possible for discipleship relationship to evolve as the mind of Christ in the Christian (Phil. 2: 5).

STUDY GUIDE: 1.

From the following scriptures, Matt. 16:21-23 (cf.1Pe.4:11); John 21:3-4, 5-6, 10, 12, 15-19; identify and discuss the need and role godly leadership plays in Christian discipleship. 4. Point out the effects of godly leadership in the two different human relationships of Mentoring and Christian discipleship. Cf. Mark 3: 14; John 15: 13-15.
