Discipleship is not an abstraction, it is not knowledge of theories and techniques, it is a state of being. It is not directly a devotional life, but it is a life of devotion. It is not about more church, more meetings, and greater discipline per se- it is about learning to live one’s life as though Christ were living it. It is the reality of Christ in one’s life in all life’s events and circumstances. Its greatest apologetic is to love as Christ loved. God’s love is a concrete action taken for the benefit of another. God’s love is more than an intention, it is an action that can be recognized by those receiving it. It is about living your ordinary mundane daily existence in a place God loves, a place where you live, work and play. If you need to learn to be kind, God has prescribed a way for you to do that- it combines, discipline, devotion, and all your heart, mind, soul and strength.
