In order to be an effective missionary, or “disciple maker,” and do missions effectively, we must take on the posture of a learner. The basic meaning of the word “disciple” is “learner.” First and foremost, as disciples of Jesus Christ, we learn from Him. As disciple makers, our primary model for demonstrating and declaring the gospel is the incarnation of Christ. Our goal is to be imitators of His humility, servanthood, and redemptive love.
