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.
Matthew 10:38 NASB
And he who does not take his cross and follow after Me is not worthy of Me.
The cross is ever presented as a choice. YOU take it up. YOU carry it. YOU deny yourself.
No ‘deep teaching’ can take you to a Cross life. No brilliant explanation will cause you to give your all for Jesus. No human appeal will ever be enough. The Holy Spirit must take you there by a unique process of His knowledge of YOU. And the way He takes is for Love, by Love through the loss of every other love. The cross is a love sacrifice, a love answer to Jesus and only that.
The disciple is one who has repented and seen Him, loved Him, and died for Him.
And…“few there be that find it.”
