Some Talysh people have placed their faith in Jesus as Savior and Lord! Praise the Lord for these “first fruits.” Unfortunately, there is very little in the way of discipleship. New believers need to learn how to grow in their relationship with Jesus through prayer, studying God’s Word, and understanding the doctrines of the faith. They need to learn Biblical ways of relating to others. The Bible has a lot to say about forgiveness, suffering, and God’s design for family relationships. They also need to learn about their role in sharing the Good News of God’s Kingdom not only with their own people, but with other peoples as well.
In short, becoming a follower of Jesus means that one’s whole life is transformed.
Pray Talysh believers will grow in spiritual maturity and knowledge.
Pray they will develop a deep love for the Word of God.
Pray the Holy Spirit will be their teacher when they are alone and isolated from other believers.
“…..We continually ask God to fill you with the knowledge of his will through all the wisdom and understanding that the Spirit gives, so that you may live a life worthy of the Lord and please him in every way: bearing fruit in every good work, growing in the knowledge of God, being strengthened with all power according to his glorious might so that you may have great endurance and patience…” Colossians 1:9-11
