“To this end also we pray for you always, that our God will count you worthy of your calling, and fulfill every desire for goodness and the work of faith with power” (2 Thessalonians 1:11).
Discipleship is but the pursuit of a call extended by Jesus to follow him. To answer the call is that decisive moment of stepping from the darkness to the light. It is a declaration of faith that becomes the defining quest of one’s life. It is not an intellectual attitude that does nothing but, rather, works, labors, strives, and competes for the purposes of God to be fulfilled. It is a calling that never stops.
