Disciple


"The disciple simply burns his boats and goes ahead. He is called out... The old life is left behind, and completely surrendered. The disciple is dragged out of his relative security into a life of absolute insecurity... out of the realm of the finite...into the realm of infinite possibilities."

- Dietrich Bonhoeffer

This quote was included with Zenit's articles today.  It certainly struck me!  What does it mean to be a disciple of Jesus?  This certainly sums it up.  If you are living for Christ and wonder why your life is upside down and turned around and not what you expected, then here is why.  When you and I follow Jesus, He calls us to more than we think we can handle or do on our own.  We need Him and He shows ALL is possible with Him.  Are you willing to trust Him and let go of everything?  Why not?  It's worth it!
