The spiritual growth of a believer is a gentle, imperceptible process. You can’t see it nor feel it but it is happening right in front of you. There will be times when you will see some signs of growth but for the most part, the growing and the maturing happens invisibly.
Discipleship group leaders, be patient. It is impossible to produce an army of committed Christians in just a few weeks. No matter how much you cast vision, clarify goals, and communicate the status of your spiritual scoreboard, maturity still happens over a period of a lifetime. That’s how God designed spiritual growth. Save yourself from frustration by accepting the fact that maturity is not microwaveable. The sooner you understand that, the less frustrating it will be for you to lead people in discipleship.
