Four Phrases of Discipleship


“Let’s go!”  says Jesus. He initiates, calling us on a trip that will inconvenience us, connect us to Him, and reach out to others.

“Oh no!” We lament. Just because He’s called us, and he’s with us, doesn’t make us immune from disasters, detours, or even death.  Despair is sometimes part of the journey.

“Oh wow!” We exclaim when He does something that only he could do. Unexpected, unparalleled and unprecedented in our lives.

“Who is He?” We wonder aloud, as we see our weakness and marvel at his ways, our fascination grows and the pursuit continues.

Disciple, we go again.


Mark 4:35-41
