Discipleship is the process of becoming like Jesus as we journey toward Him. As Christians, we stand united with Christ but we also follow after Him in every aspect of our lives.
It would seem as we get older that we would perfect the art of following, be more aware of our weaknesses and have a deeper desire to know Jesus that displays a greater intimacy. I have found that getting older, it’s easy to rely on what I learned at first and not pursue God with the same energy how I did at the beginning.
“May the Lord lead your hearts into a full understanding and expression of the love of God and the patient endurance that comes from Christ.” (2 Thessalonians 3:5 NLT)
May we approach today like it’s the first days with Jesus, even if it has been years since we started our journey of following Him.
Let’s not presume on the Spirit of grace but let Him lead us into a full understanding and expression of God’s love, as we take another look at discipleship.
