March 4 The Call To Discipleship

Matthew 11:29 Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.

30 For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.


Discipleship is the call to Calvary, first and foremost to receive the forgiveness and salvation provided by God’s great love. But we are to never remain solely as forgiven penitents. We are called to grow as God’s son and daughters, to serve as His faithful stewards, and to learn as His devoted disciples. And all of that growth, service and learning is most practically processed not by the way we handle life’s blessings, but by the way we live through its bad days.
