Being a Disciple is Apprenticing Yourself to God

by John Michael
(RCV)

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.
