The following exercise is meant for any disciple or discipler to rehearse with one another, sincerely pondering the questions included in order to examine one's own level of interaction within the growth spiral process. This does not measure a person's development. This practice only encourages full participation in the structure of discipleship through the method of the 5 relationships outlined in scripture. It invites the disciple to deeper engagement, which, through the Spirit's guidance will take us through the ever expanding spiral to maturity.
