Building Friendships

As you seek to build each other in their faith, friendship is an important part. It is growing together…praying together, sharing Scripture, what’s happening in your lives, encouragement to trust God, etc.

Jesus talked often about the need to love one another. As you reach your campus together, remember to care for each other.

Building others in their relationship with God is not just for their own growth. The focus is outward. The ultimate goal is to lead hundreds or thousands of students into a relationship with Jesus…on your campus, and perhaps beyond!

Yet, do not grow inward. Don’t care only for your group.

The focus is outward. The ultimate goal is to lead hundreds or thousands of students into a relationship with Jesus…on your campus, and perhaps beyond!

Jesus said, “…make disciples of all nations, baptizing them… teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you.” (Matt 28:18-20)
Paul said, “Him we proclaim, warning everyone and teaching everyone with all wisdom, that we may present everyone mature in Christ.” (Col 1:28)

Paul also wrote Timothy, “what you have heard from me…entrust to faithful men [and women] who will be able to teach others also.” (2Tim2:2)

It seems that “teaching” them is a major part of discipleship.

“All nations…everyone…teach others also…” shows the outward goal.

You are teaching others how to grow in their relationship with Christ, how to lead others to him, how to help new believers grow, etc.

Important: Teach simply, so others can pass it along. You want those you teach to think, “That’s easy. I can share that.” Then those they teach, will be able to teach others also.

    Happiness. No one rejects, dislikes, or avoids pleasure itself, because it is pleasure, but because those who do not know how to pursue pleasure rationally encounter consequences that are extremely painful. Nor again is there anyone who loves or pursues or desires to obtain pain of itself, because it is pain, but because occasionally circumstances occur in which toil and pain can procure him some great pleasure. To take a trivial example, which of us ever undertakes laborious physical exercise, except to obtain some advantage from it? But who has any right to find fault with a man
