Discipleship is Grace
Within a gracious relationship with the Father, Son, and the Holy Spirit, all true discipleship occurs. The purpose of discipleship is to bring someone into the same kind of relationship that God the Father has with Jesus the Son. The goal of the Holy Spirit is to bring the believer into that kind of son and daughter relationship with God the Father. We can rejoice that discipleship is not a set of disciplines or a portion of academic learning, but in reality it is a living relationship to the triune God: with God as a Father, the Son as our protection and Redeemer, and the Holy Spirit who makes us alive to this new relationship.
Titus 2:11-12 says, “For the grace of God has appeared, bringing salvation to all men, instructing us to deny ungodliness and worldly desires and to live sensibly, righteously, godly in the present age." To have a relationship with the Trinity is to be in an environment of grace. That environment of grace is what will lead the believer to develop character as the believer trusts the truth of Scripture and experiences the reality of the Holy Spirit's presence. Because of our weakness and sin, it is only grace that can cope with our problems within. Grace allows us to honestly look at our difficulties, our weaknesses, and to confidently go to God the Father for help. This help is not based on our character, but the kindly grace of our triune God.
