Discipleship requires that someone is asking the “hard” questions that relate to the application of the Word of God. Some would refer to these questions as “Accountability Questions”, and if you Google that phrase you will find the first ten results will all be from Christian sites. There are a myriad of questions that reflect a basic discipleship process and help you to mentor someone else in following Christ.
For cell leaders, our questions reflect another facet of accountability that is simple and fundamental. Questions that request an honest response and intial evaluation of how the most recent Bible message that we shared together is being actively pursued for apprehension and lifestyle upgrades, i.e. becoming more Christlike.
This is certainly a great advantage within the cell-based church. Any pastor would love to know that his message preparation has produced fruit in the lives of hearers. Mid-week cell meetings bring the message to a strong deveolpment point where someone who knows the other person intimately is able to ask the questions that promote growth and progress.
