inspiring discipleship

Willow Creek UK are hosting a great conference in February exploring discipleship, with some of the best global voices around. Seriously consider attending. But anyhow, in advance as part of the preparations, they’re wanting to gather up quoteable quotes about discipleship. So what are yours….? Consider contributing yours directly here.
Here are some of my favourites…..

To make disciples is not a wind of doctrine, but a wondrous calling. – Miguel

If you make disciples, you always get the church. But if you make a church, you rarely get disciples. Effective discipleship builds the church, not the other way around. – Mike Breen

Discipleship in eight simple words. ‘When God asks you to do something, say yes’. – Malcolm Duncan

Discipleship is about transformation not information: grace not guilt.

“We are not meant to die merely in order to be dead. God could not want that for the creatures to whom He has given the breath of life. We die in order to live.” – Elizabeth Elliot

“The best measure of a spiritual life is not its ecstasies but its obedience.” –  Oswald Chambers

Discipleship is “Not hero worship, but intimacy with Christ.” – Dietrich Bonhoeffer

Depth is never sexy, easy or a cheap priority, but it’s where the health, fruit and priority are found.

Cheap grace is grace without discipleship, grace without the cross, grace without Jesus Christ, living and incarnate.” – Dietrich Bonhoeffer

A commitment to be and make disciples must be the central act of every disciple and every church – Bill Hull
