I am not a pastor, a preacher, or a missionary. I love people, talking about Jesus, and giving. I am not an astrophysicist, a chef, or a comedian. I love looking up, eating, and making people laugh. I am not a father, husband, or son. I have three amazing kids, a stunning wife, and wonderful parents. I am not a writer, and I’ve written a few books. I am loved. That is who I am – loved. And I am becoming love…
In early 2010, my brother Joel asked me if I would be interested in writing the guide book to the second offering of Donald Millers “The Open Table.” Joel was filming the video component and the author role was available. The book would accompany the film as a discipleship guide for new believers. I told Joel that I would be honored to write it.
For about a month I wondered what I should write. All I had to go on was the word discipleship. “Discipleship is biblical,” I thought. “Jesus had disciples, so that’s good…"
But I don’t have years of sermons sitting in a file in my office – my office is Starbucks and they wont let me keep stuff there. So I asked God about it.
Here is what I got; discipleship is about introducing a believer to their new identity. Discipleship is about releasing a believer into a revelation of who they are in Christ. And it is simple; we are loved and becoming love.
The Open Table released late 2010. It’s a five-week discipleship devotional that introduces believers, new and old, into their identity as sons and daughters of a good King. While it is great to read along with a small group while watching the DVD, it also stands alone as a wonderful introduction to walking with God.
