All messages linked to this page are the property of Herb Hodges,
of Spiritual Life Ministries.

Editorial Comments are from ToBeLikeHim.com

Many of us, who have been honored to be associated with Pastor Herb Hodges over the years, have extensive libraries of "Brother Herb" messages and audio tapes. Herb has given us permission to share his written discipling studies with you. We will post them as time for uploading permits and as long as file space remains on this site. It is Herb's desire that these messages will be used in a structured teaching plan for making ďworld-visionary, world-impacting, reproducing disciplesĒ.

Why should there be structured plan for making disciples? Because Jesus used a structured plan for making disciples. If you do not know the meaning of or need for a structured plan for making disciples, you need to read ďTally Ho The FoxĒ.

Our belief is that messages from Herb Hodges are like ďSeeds in the bag that the sower carries into the field of disciple makingĒ. The wealth of discipling information, knowledge and wisdom in each message is oftentimes overwhelming.

A word of caution. These messages require careful study, oftentimes over multiple study sessions. They are valuable for individual study, for group study with your disciples and for presentation as teaching material.

We believe you will be blessed by each of these messages. Our prayer is that you will be led to use them to further the kingdom and in your efforts to make disciples for the glory of our Lord.

Herb's messages are spiritually deep and intellectually challenging. Although the content of these messages is interesting and entertaining, you will find these messages to be spiritually stimulating and very thought provoking. Our experience (and Herbís instructions) is that these messages were never intended to be consumed in one sitting. There is value in reading and digesting each message several times, with new insights coming with each exposure.

Discipling Vignettes

These short messages were all written by and are the intellectual property of Herb Hodges. They are intended to be used as part of a structured training curriculum for disciples. They are valuable training materials and discipling tools, which may be used in several ways:

 

        They are valuable as standalone studies, assigned to individual disciples or groups of disciples. In this case, the study would be completed by the disciple(s) and then discussed at the next meeting.

 

        They are suitable for teaching sessions, either by the discipler or assigned to a growing disciple to teach to the group.

 

        They serve as a source of valuable information to help answer questions the growing disciple might have concerning the discipling process.

 

        They teach disciplines (such as quiet time, effective Bible Study, prayer) that are key to the discipleís life.

 

        They help introduce discipling concepts to Christians who are not familiar with discipling.

 

        They help refresh and stimulate thought in the disciple (and discipler).
