The goal of discipleship is Christlikeness. Disciple making guides people to be transformed in Christlikeness so they think and act like Christ.
God is transforming us into the image of Christ (2 Cor. 3:18, 1 Cor. 15:49). God has placed the Holy Spirit of Christ in the lives of those who have come to faith in Christ (1 Cor. 6:19, Col. 1:27).
We have the mind of Christ (1 Cor. 16). God's predetermined purpose is to transform us into Christlikeness (Rom. 8:28-29). We cooperate with God by putting off the old sinful nature and behaviors and putting on the new self that is increasingly Christlike (Col. 3:8-10).
