When it came to making disciples Jesus did not hand out books, not even the Bible. He prayed and then called those the Father identified as His disciples to come and be with Him.

He invited them into His everyday life where He first let them observe HOW He lived and taught them what His Father had taught Him. Then, when He believed they knew enough about what He was doing, He sent them out to live it for themselves.

When they returned from living it out, He reminded them that their true value and worth was not rooted in what they had just done, but rooted in their relationship with Him. They became like Him because He invited them into His everyday life.

And that is what Jesus envisioned when He said to go and make disciples. That we would invite others into the ordinary everyday life we live.
