quote of the week: Ann Spangler and Lois Tverberg on being disciples of Jesus

So often we focus on Jesus' mission on the cross to save us from our sins. As marvelous as that is, it's critical for us to grasp the importance of his mission on earth as a rabbi. His goal was to raise up disciples who would become like him. As followers of Jesus, we are still called to live out the adventure of discipleship, becoming like Jesus through the power of his Spirit at work within us.
Ann Spangler and Lois Tverberg, Sitting at the Feet of Rabbi Jesus, 34.

AMEN! May we become more and more faithful to our rabbi by the empowerment of the Spirit, as we become disciples/followers rather than merely believers!
