Lately I’ve been thinking through how Jesus made disciples, based on my observations of scripture. I’ll post one insight per day here. You can find all of them by searching “How Jesus made disciples” on my blog.
Jesus assumed discipleship to be holistic in nature, touching on and transforming all areas of life.
That means our relationships, our money, our calling and purpose… everything. All we have and all we are.
Anyone who loves their father or mother more than me is not worthy of me; anyone who loves their son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me. Whoever does not take up their cross and follow me is not worthy of me. Whoever finds their life will lose it, and whoever loses their life for my sake will find it. (Matt. 10:37-39)
What does this mean for us? Discipleship will impact every area of a person’s life– not just the “spiritual” parts.
Biblical passages to consider: Matthew 10:37-39, Romans 12:1-2, Matthew 16:24, Revelation 21:1-5
