‘True Discipleship-Part I’

Colossians 1:28,29

“He is the one we proclaim, admonishing and teaching everyone with all wisdom, so that we may present everyone fully mature in Christ. To this end I strenuously contend with all the energy Christ so powerfully works in me.”

Reflecting. meditating and praying over this passage from Paul on discipleship: 

He is the one we proclaim….

It starts with Jesus. Paul has already proclaimed that….

v 15 – He is the image of the invisible God!

v 15 – He is the firstborn over all creation! 

v 16 – He created all things!

v 17 – He is before all things 

v 17 – In Him, all things hold together!

v 18 – He is the Head of the Body, the Church

v 18 – He is the beginning

v 18 – He is the firstborn from the dead

v 18 – He is to have supremacy in everything 

v 19 – God’s fullness dwells in Him

v 20 – He reconciled all things, in Heaven and earth 

True Discipleship for the Christ follower is learning to follow Jesus. 

A lifetime of learning. 

A lifetime of following. 

Reflection: Knowing Jesus, following Jesus and making Jesus known is the starting point, the midpoint and the end point.
