Let's just be real, I would have picked a Governor, a lawyer or even a celebrity to be a Disciple. Yet, Jesus does something different. It's really amazing. I guess it is really true that, "man looks at the outside but God looks at the heart". Man looks at the outward features of a person, we look at the jobs, we look at the money. Yet, our wonderful Jesus looks deeper and that's refreshing.
Being God's disciple starts with the heart. Remember, God already knows our heart. We have to really be able to
"take up our cross and follow him". Follow his will and his way. Now, there will be times when we will fall asleep on the job. There have been times when we betrayed him and doubted him. Yet, Discipleship is more about Jesus and his way and his agenda. It's not about WHO we are.. Discipleship is about Jesus and Jesus alone. Are you qualified?
