i. understand godly leadership and Christian discipleship
ii. have the right direction for the rest of the studies in this section .
Christian discipleship is one area the Church today must pay a close attention.
It has to do with raising true or genuine Disciples of Christ. Incidentally, the
Church has struggled hard for success with this for many reasons. This study
shows the need to have godly leadership in place before any meaningful
discipleship labour can be done in the Church. For the purpose of this study,
‘godly leadership’ means leadership that has set its heart on the holy pursuit of
God and His purposes.
1. Explain in your own words what you understand as ‘Godly leadership’ and
2. What do you learn from these examples of godly leadership and discipleship
in Exod. 17:14; 24:12-15; 33:11; Num. 11:27-30; Jos.1:1- ?2
3. How is godly leadership relevant to Christian Discipleship? Num. 11:27-29;
2 Kings 12:1-2; 2 Tim.1:3-6 .
4. In the light of the discussion so far, how can the Church of Nigeria achieve
its desire for effective discipleship in her Churches/members?
CONCLUSION: Without godly leadership in our Churches, the pursuit of
Christian Discipleship will continue to be a mirage. Engagement in discipleship
calls for concern-effort to critically re-examine ourselves in the light of what is
the core pursuit of the leadership of our Church.
