January’s word was REST.
February’s word was HUMILITY.
March’s word is DISCIPLESHIP.
Green is the color of spring, which is peeking around the corner in spite of the flurries swirling outside right now. Green is also the color of growth. New life. Nourishment. Flourishing.
What comes to mind when you think of discipleship? Boot camp, sweat, toil, and tears? The cross? The Holy Spirit? Joy?
Admittedly, I feel drained when I think of discipleship. Sometimes spiritual growth can feel like studying for a test. A lot of effort with uncertain results. But this isn’t the biblical picture of discipleship. The Bible paints a disciple as someone who follows the teaching of another, who is committed to the way of another. And the process of discipleship? It’s a road of joy and sacrifice. A road that leads to eternal life.
Come explore the road of discipleship with me this March.
