Being a Disciple is Apprenticing Yourself to God
by John Michael
To paraphrase George MacDonald, "The moment you begin to do something Jesus said to do, just because he said it, you become a disciple. The only way you can understand more about what God wants, is to do your duty."
Many, if not most, of the simple tradesmen, housewives, laborers and fisherman of Jesus' day were illiterate, and handwritten scrolls were expensive and not widespread among the poor. Their way of learning was to apprentice themselves, learning by watching, listening, and working to do what they observed, and were instructed to do by their master, not systematic theology or, "studying" books. Their fruit tells the story of whether this works, and so will ours, to the extent that we do it.

I get a commission if you buy Xero shoes
, which does not increase your cost. Barefoot running/walking is the best thing for your feet--if we did not walk on cement, asphalt, and gravel. Normal shoes compress your toes and do a lot of the work your lower leg muscles should be doing. Xero shoes are minimalist and let your toes spread and your feet do the work they are supposed to do.
