This mentoring relationship requires the kind of intentionality that makes ongoing participation a key priority rooted in Jesus’ command to “make disciples” (Matt. 28:18-20). This approach also emphasizes individuality, encouraging questions and discussion about the personal issues affecting the spiritual growth of the participants. As each lesson is completed, it strengthens a friendship which helps both partners pursue a pattern of Christ-centered spiritual influence. Since believers are challenged to “make the most of the time” (Eph. 5:16), each day is an unrepeatable opportunity for investments which will matter for eternity.
