personal discipleship simply described

Personal discipleship in Jesus is to pray every day, no matter what, and pray through the day. And to read the Bible everyday, no matter what. At least the McCheyne method (or equivalent). Sermon prep DOES NOT count.
No excuses. Sit with God. Soak in His goodness and beauty. Daily.

Open my Bible before I open my mouth each day.

No. Matter. What.

Here’s the draft:

If I refuse to do this, I better keep my mouth shut and, for sure, I should not be trying to teach others about the God I refuse to engage with daily.

Am I suggesting too much? 

Think so? Maybe a long look at the cross and contemplation of that price will help.

It’s not about earning or measuring up, it’s about being with the God who loved me enough to die to make me fit to hang out with.

Thank. You. Jesus.

Lewis on Friends

… Friendship arises the same way. For us of course the shared activity and therefore the companionship on which Friendship supervenes will not often be a bodily one like hunting or fighting. It may be a common religion, common studies, eight common profession, even a common recreation. All who share it will be our companions; but one or two or three who share something more will be our Friends. 

Friendshipin The Four Loves, C. S. Lewis
