Dallas Willard- How Does the Disciple Live?


What does it truly mean to be a disciple of Jesus Christ? In Dallas Willard's article, How Does the Disciple Live?, he explains what it truly means to be a disciple of Jesus Christ.

"As Jesus’ disciple, I am his apprentice in kingdom living. I am learning from him how to lead my life in the Kingdom of the Heavens as he would lead my life if he were I. It is my faith in him that led me to become his disciple. My confidence in him simply means that I believe that he is right about everything: that all that he is and says shows what life is at its best, what it was intended by God to be. “In him was life and the life was the light of men.” (John 1:4 NAS)

Whether you are a Christian who desires to understand discipleship better or someone who has ask, "What does it mean to follow Jesus?," I believe this article will encourage and challenge you.
