As I have yearned more and more for discipleship, I have learned more and more about it. And I have taught it and shared it every chance I get. After many conversations about discipleship, I have discovered two very, very awkward questions. They are awkward because people squirm and do not know how to answer them. But they are vital questions....urgent even. They can make or break your faith journey. These two questions are extremely serious. They indicate whether you are living obediently to Jesus's mission. Here they are:
- Who is discipling you?
- Who are you discipling?
That's it. I know, I know. You were expecting something a little more crazy.
Well, here is a challenge for you. Start asking people these two questions. And watch what happens. Watch how few people can answer you.
