Day 139

DISCIPLE MAKER

"By this all men will know that you are my disciples,
if you love one another."
John 13:35

 

FROM THE FATHER'S HEART
My child, do you really desire to be My disciple? Are you willing to pay the price? Are you afraid of where I might lead you? Of what might be taken away? No one who has followed Me has ever left behind more than I will give him in exchange. Spend time with Me daily. Listen well. I will make you My disciple. In the past you have lived for yourself. But when you let My love flow through you, others will know you are truly My disciple.

A GRATEFUL RESPONSE
From an unlikely band of misfits, Lord, You chose Your disciples. You poured Your life into theirs, teaching them, guiding them, and walking with them daily. As a disciple maker, You taught them how to love. Because of Your eternal investment, I, too, can become Your disciple.

SIMPLE TRUTH

God doesn't expect your best. He wants your all.
