  1. I love this since I am old school and not too much for social media although I know it has its benefits.

  2. What a wonderful reminder of the importance of caring and sharing our lives with others who need to know someone cares for them and that they are loved. Jesus is the greatest example for us, knowing He gave His life for us.

  3. Amen, Grace! I’m currently involved in putting together training for our Titus 2 ministry at church. I’m thinking your tweetable definition of discipleship needs to be part of our course! Blessings (((0)))

  4. Grace,

    Never thought I could be a disciple or had a story to share. Then life happened. Now God has me in a position to be a disciple at work. To come alongside the families of our ICU patients & just be there for them. Let them know that someone cares for them. One patient’s wife told her that I reminded him of his mom due to my kindness. Other patients’ families have thanked me for caring for them. Empathy is a big emotion of mine. I understand the pain of being in hospital waiting for a loved one to get well. So like Jesus I shower them all with God’s love & light.

  5. I found this article refreshing – lifegiving! Thank you, Grace, for writing it and for (in)courage posting it. Sometimes church gets so formulated that it misses authentic connection which we all need. Will definitely go over this a couple to few more times. I love its simple practical take-a-way!!

    May our LORD continue to bless His work through all our hearts and hands!
