Discipleship: Grace

The last two posts dealt with the nature and the positive influence of discipleship, but the fact that discipleship is a supernatural relationship must not be overlooked. This truth has been driven home to me recently. Notice the classic verse on discipleship 2Tim. 2:1-2 Thou therefore, my son, be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus. And the things that thou hast heard of me among many witnesses, the same commit thou to faithful men, who shall be able to teach others also. Grace is the work of God empowering us to accomplish His goals. The first half of the book of Ephesians confirms that we stand before God by grace. This grace is our daily confidence. This grace allows us to communicate with Him because He has made us right, justified. The second half of Ephesians reveals that this grace is mighty in us to walk. We must have grace in order to follow on. Grace is a command to avail ourselves of a resource. Paul said in Gal.2:21 I do not frustrate the grace of God. The Grace of God is a Person. Discipleship is working yoked to this Person, guided, strengthened, focused, and many times carried. Grace is the only reason we can look back and see any consistency or any faithfulness in our life and ministry. Thank God for His unspeakable gift.
