Values-Driven Discipleship

Biblical Instruction and Character Training Manual
by Marc and Cynthia Carrier

Parent and Child

What is discipleship?   Discipleship is making obedient followers of Jesus Christ.

How were we intended to accomplish this?    In the context of life!

Deuteronomy 6:6-7 tells us that discipleship is about keeping God’s precepts in our hearts and then diligently teaching our children…as we sit in the house, walk by the way, lay down, and rise up. That’s right, Biblical instruction was intended to occur in the home during real life, by PARENTS!

Does this intimidate you at all? Understandable. After all, the Bible is a big book and sometimes it’s hard to find the precepts to teach when in the trenches…the “just right” verse to bring to a child’s attention so that he begins to understand God’s Word and how He intends us to live.

Values-Driven Discipleship can help! It sums up, in twelve “core value” concepts, the traits that express Christlike character. It spells out and organizes key Bible verses and stories that you can utilize to reach your child’s heart with God’s Word in real-time.

Use it proactively to teach through the concepts and help your child to grow in the values that God values: Faith, Surrender, Love, Faithfulness, Wisdom, Self-Control, Righteousness, Holiness, Humility, Diligence, Generosity, and Praise. Or, when issues and incidents arise, go to the handy index to look up those behaviors, and find passages for correction and re-direction.

Values-Driven Discipleship also includes a thorough introductory chapter with guidance on leading family devotions, Scripture memory, and capturing those “teachable moments,” so that you can use the resource within your family effectively.
