What does it look like to really follow Jesus?
Not just be an enthusiastic Catholic who goes to Mass each week, throws money in the basket, and goes through the motions of faith.
But what is happening on the inside? How do I know if I’m really growing in my relationship with God? Am I just a fan of Jesus or a true follower?
A disciple always keeps two basic truths in mind:
(A) First, the truth of our weaknesses, wounds, and sins.
And (B) the truth of our high calling – we are called to be healed and perfected in Christ.
Discipleship is all about the process of getting from A to B; from where I am now to where Christ wants me to be.
