    At first glance, I wanted to push back on the title of today’s Daily Text, “I am not a disciple maker…and neither are you.” What part of the Great Commission did JD miss, but upon reading the Text and his reflection, he is correct. We don’t actually “make disciples,” anymore than we don’t save people, God (Holy Spirit) does. However, we are “commissioned” to participate in this process. We can create environments and a process or structure that provides space for the Holy Spirit to do the work of Spiritual Formation. We can also model the behavior and be the change we desire to see in others. As JD points out, this is often the most important role we play in the process. The thing I have grown to appreciate is that we are discipled as we disciple others. What a privilege and blessing it is to be a partner with the Holy Spirit in this process!
