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.
Ephesians 1:18-20a NASB
I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened, so that you will know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints, and what is the surpassing greatness of His power toward us who believe. These are in accordance with the working of the strength of His might, which He brought about in Christ, when He raised Him from the dead…
The other side of the cross is a whole new life, the very Life of Christ by the POWER of resurrection. Sometimes you can experience the change, but most of the time you are not aware of how great a transformation has taken you over.
Resurrection is a very great and wonderful mystery. Through the cross, the very Life of Christ rises in you. Where you died, He lives. Where you relinquished, He took over. His holy nature replaces your unholy nature.
We are meant to live on the resurrection side, where Christ the Lord is the entire explanation of a wondrous life.
He thinks, He endures, He conquers, He speaks…instead of me. Jesus is the ‘Person’ I cannot be. He is the power I do not have. Above all, He loves where I cannot and is then the One-Love of my life.
