Pretty much all of them are baby Christians or people that have recently re-dedicated their lives to God that we are talking to. What would you do in this situation?
We are not to claim the Glory that ultimately belongs to God, as two previous posters eloquently said. We can't save anyone.
If a born again is hungry, he/she will go looking for the Lord with all their might. Discipling others is fine upto a certain degree, but we have to take a step back and allow God to do His work. We are not responsible for someone elses maturity or not. We all grow and mature at different paces, its all in God's timing not ours. Do not think it is all on your shoulders, its not your fight, God is quite capable of taking care of this, we plant a seed when we share the gospel, and maybe even help water it from time to time, but it is all down to the Holy Spirit working in that individual. We have to allow the Word of God speak for itself aswell, and so if they are not biting what you are offering, then maybe its the wrong food , or the right food at the wrong time, or its the right food delivered incorrectly...... see what I mean...... or some aren't really saved. I would pray about this more, and trust the Lord that He will use you in His timing, its not something to be forced.
