Yesterday I asked for help. I wanted you to talk about the word “disciple” in 15 words. Twelve of you made comments here and I got a DM on twitter and an email. That’s amazing!.
Here’s I what now know.
Disciple isn’t just this:
Being a disciple may include sitting and listening OR standing and talking.
But it’s about learning and applying and wrestling and struggling and questioning and acknowledging ignorance and acknowledging that someone is more like you want to be than you are and spending time together and spending time trying and spending time messing up and spending time together sorting it out and spending time trying again and understanding that part and spending time learning the next thing. It’s about learning by listening and by watching and by doing and experiencing and by thinking and by waiting. It’s about teaching with a whole life and learning for a whole life.
I think. At least, that’s what I’m hearing in what you said.
Add to the definitions here or comment on what I just said.
Or go and play this weekend.
One last question, though.
You are discipling (all of the stuff above) someone. Who is it? What are they learning?
