Kind words of correction are a greater blessing than empty words of flattery. ~Proverbs 28:23 (Randy Reed Paraphrased Version)

Randy came through again for me! He has an amazing way with Spirit-led words. As I journey on the road of intentionally and consciously following Jesus (aka Discipleship), I wrote yesterday about the need to allow and even bless the opportunities for spiritual growth that come in the tough times of life. Sometimes those “tough times” might just come from my friends or family.

“Count it all joy, my friends, when you meet various trials…”       James 1:2

OK, this is NOT an easy one for me. I was thinking about James 1 on my walk yesterday morning and asking God to give me texts that can continue guiding me in this GMU journey in the value of discipleship. And after that prayer the first text that came to mind was this one, and I’d already written GMU for yesterday so I prayed that it would stay with me until this morning so I can write about it! And it did!!

"I urge you therefore, brethren, in view of God’s mercy, that you present your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God. This is your spiritual act of worship.  Don’t be conformed to this world: but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you can prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God." Romans 12:1-2

"By this is My Father glorified, that you bear much fruit, and so prove to be My disciples.” John 15:8

“By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.” John 13:35

On my Biblical journey in discipleship, I want to look for what specifically God’s word says about being a “follower of Jesus.” Last night as I was falling asleep and thinking about GMU this text came to mind and it came back again this morning. What an obvious yet logical place to begin. It doesn’t get much more basic than this.

“All Scripture is God-breathed.”                2 Timothy 3:16

If I’m going to focus on discipleship- being a disciple, or follower, of Jesus then I better start with the most basic reference on how to accomplish that task. This is the first verse that came to mind as I started contemplating the process.
