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.
Luke 2:25, 26 NASB
Simeon…was righteous and devout, looking for the consolation of Israel; and the Holy Spirit was upon him.
And it had been revealed to him by the Holy Spirit that he would not see death before he had seen the Lord’s Christ (or Messiah).
Church is to be the manifestation of Christ on this earth – Jesus appearing through a people! And that only happens when He is the Source, the Life, and above all…the HEAD of each individual.
Once, I was moving my father’s estate. My dear friend Jack, the moving man, picked up a picture of Simeon holding the baby Jesus and gazing at Him. Jack looked at that picture very carefully and this huge man, with such loving softness (as if only to himself), said, “Ah, the Boss…”
Now I tell you, few even know that Christ is to be literally the Boss, much less love the fact that HE IS!
