Packer on Discipleship

Discipleship is a matter of relating oneself to the living, exalted Christ as both learner and follower, and to the rest of Christ’s disciples as one who longs both to learn from them and to give to them, knowing that being in their company is the Masters will. These things must be clearly taught, or the nature of the Christian life will surely be misunderstood.

From “The Gospel: Its Content and Communication” (in Down to Earth Stott and Cook, ed)
