Discipleship in Essence


Discipleship in Essence

Breathe on me breath of God
Fill me with life anew
That I may love what thou dost love
And do what thou wouldst do

Edwin Hatch


Leave Him to be the source of all your dreams and joys and delights and go out and obey what He has said. If you are in love you do not sit down and dream about the one you love all the time, you go out and do something for Him and that is what Jesus Christ expects us to do. Dreaming after God has spoken is an indication that we do not trust Him.

Part of entry from my Utmost from His Highest 20/2/2014 Oswald Chambers

Go forward

Read our bibles, materials, books etc with a focus to how we may  go forward with Yeshua. We want to grow and mature in our faith. We want to start taking solid foods. We do not seek to look for materials with the focus on how much we can get away with!

 The heart

"Love The Lord with all your heart" means we are to use our thoughts as well as our emotions to love The Lord.  The Greek interpretation added " and mind" to emphasize this. But a Hebrew reader would not have needed this emphasis and would have understood that the heart meant all our mind, our emotions, our thought. The Hebrew uses physical things to describe the abstract. Hence the heart for thoughts and emotions. Loving Him, worshipping Him therefore includes studying scripture. In Yeshua's time, the study of scripture was the highest form of worship. (Studying the Torah). He expects us to know our scripture well.

All our mental activity should be dedicated to Him. Every thought to be held captive so it  be obedient to The Lord. 2 Corinthians 10:5

( Kidneys: inmost being. Blood: life)
