Being a Disciple

“Being a disciple of Jesus is not primarily a matter of getting the right ideas and doctrines and beliefs into your head in order to guarantee proper behavior; rather, it’s a matter of being the kind of person wholoves rightly—who loves God and neighbor and is oriented to the world by the primacy of that love. We are made to be such people by our immersion in the material practices of Christian worship—though affective impact, over time, of sights and smell in water and wine.”

– James K. A. Smith, Desiring the Kingdom

{HT: Steve Wilkins}
