How to disciple a non-Christian unbeliever

How to disciple a non-Christian unbeliever or someone who knows little about the Bible

God may send you a non-Christian unbeliever or someone who has zero knowledge about the Bible to disciple. They may not know anything about the Messiah or the Bible. When Jesus called the apostles, they had no idea who he was, nor were their hearts regenerated by the Holy Spirit.

BASIC CHRISTIAN APOLOGETICS.

1. Establish an honest and sincere relationship

The Bible does not provide clear steps on “how to disciple,” but the reasons for discipleship are explicit. When Jesus gave the command to do so, the process was simple—build a relationship.

Sometimes, the urgency to disciple may be immediate, but usually, we disciple those we have already welcomed in our home who have seen how we are with our parents, spouse, or children, and that’s enough for them to trust us.

Proverbs 27:5
Open rebuke is better than secret love.

2. Pray to determine who God is sending you to disciple

The doctrine of election can be contentious, but it is essential to realize that there are people whom God chose to be saved. God may send these “elects” to be discipled. We must pray for them in advance because we do not know who God is sending. Ask the Holy Spirit for discernment.

John 6:44
No one can come to me unless the Father who sent me draws him. And I will raise him on the last day.

John 17:18
As You sent Me into the world, I also have sent them into the world.

3. Communicate the importance of a teachable heart

Wisdom and knowledge are learned, but the first qualification to disciple should be a “teachable heart.” Therefore, one of the signs we look for is humility. A proud person will reject instructions; it’s man’s sinful nature. However, it is implied that the discipler is preaching from the scriptures.

2 Timothy 2:1-2
You, therefore, my son, be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus. The things which you have heard from me in the presence of many witnesses, entrust these to faithful [b]people who will be able to teach others also.

HOW CAN I OVERCOME MY SINFUL NATURE?

4. Willing to commit to a schedule

To commit to something is not easy. Part of it is availability. Naturally, we disciple people who live close to us. More importantly, they are willing to commit to a schedule.

Acts 2:42
They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and fellowship, the breaking of bread, and prayer.
