A person who you enjoy spending time with (more often than not).
Who is rooting for you to succeed at the things that really matter.
Who has regular, ongoing, and a surprising amount of access to be able to see how things really are with you.
Who pushes you to go a bit harder after the right things.
Who isn’t afraid to wound you a little when required.
Who’s willing and open to the whole thing going both ways.
Pray for this if you don’t have it – it’s a request Jesus is delighted to honour.
You can’t do this discipleship thing alone… and really, why would you want to?
