God gives his Holy Spirit to each person who decides to follow Jesus and enters into a relationship with him. Not only that but you and I were created by God with a purpose of doing good works in Christ Jesus that only you and I can do. And the Holy Spirit has given you gifts to accomplish those tasks and build up the body of Christ.
Unfortunately, many Christians never discover their gifts nor their purpose! Discipleship is an intentional process of training and growth guided by a mentor and it is how Jesus trained his followers. We also use this process of discipleship to attain the goal for each follower of Jesus to find their purpose, to be trained, and to put their gifts to use so they can fulfill their purpose and live the dream!
