When making a disciple, what exactly should we know? What exactly should we say to the person wanting to learn?


That is quite a question and a good one.

There are two things I would tell that person, and if they can grasp these two concepts then that are teachable and clay that can be molded into something great.

  1. Be flexible, teachable, be a “new wine skin” that God can pour His Spirit into. Matthew 9:16-17   No man putteth a piece of new cloth unto an old garment, for that which is put in to fill it up taketh from the garment, and the rent is made worse.  Neither do men put new wine into old bottles: else the bottles break, and the wine runneth out, and the bottles perish: but they put new wine into new bottles, and both are preserved.
  2. Be humble and be ready to serve just as Jesus did… John 13:3-5 Jesus knowing that the Father had given all things into his hands, and that he was come from God, and went to God; He riseth from supper, and laid aside his garments; and took a towel, and girded himself. After that he poureth water into a bason, and began to wash the disciples’ feet, and to wipe them with the towel wherewith he was girded.

If you can teach them these two principles then I believe they are on their way 🙂  These were the two things Jesus was always reinforcing to His own disciples.
