What Discipleship Is (and Isn’t)


Discipleship is not about:

  • Religious rituals

[By denying our Self so we can follow Jesus all the way to the Cross]

Which is how others learn to enjoy Him.

John 19:34

So I am living a new start
When from me sin pours
I’m free to be yours
Where nothing will ever tear us apart

Today I will un-guard my heart — the right way!
