In his ministry, Jesus did not set out to start a religion; his goal was to start a movement. He gathered around himself people who were willing to learn from him and to follow him. These disciples would continue the work—the movement—of the kingdom of God for generations after he was gone. But it is no small commitment to be a disciple of Jesus. Jesus asks for nothing less than all that we have and all that we are. Are we willing to walk the way of discipleship?
