About The Mystery of Discipleship Series
Jesus’ closest disciples were trusted to speak for Him and tell us His story. All are called to the mystery of discipleship, but the choice is ours.
Hebrews 11:13b-16 ESV
…they were strangers and exiles on the earth. For people who speak thus make it clear that they are seeking a homeland. If they had been thinking of that land from which they had gone out, they would have had opportunity to return. But as it is, they desire a better country, that is, a heavenly one. Therefore, God is not ashamed to be called their God, for He has prepared for them a city.
This is discipleship: A saint (very dear to me) recently went to the mission field of her calling. She said, “There was something very strange. I was completely at home there, and when I went back to my house in the states, I was completely at home there, too! I realized that wherever I am is home because…Christ is my home! Christ is my country.”
