Luke 14:27  


Both discipleship and CrossFit training require discipline and consistency. A disciple of Jesus must consistently practice spiritual disciplines such as prayer, Bible study, and living out Christ-like values. Similarly, CrossFit athletes must maintain a disciplined training regimen, consistently working on their strength, endurance, and skills to improve their performance.

Additionally, in both cases, the community provides encouragement, motivation, and accountability, which can help individuals stay committed and focused on their journey.

Discipleship, at its core is more than teaching about Jesus. It is teaching others how to gain a deeper understanding of Jesus and his teachings. As they obtain this knowledge, they will recognize God’s hand in their lives in many more ways than before.

In John, Jesus tells us what disciples do. “Whoever serves me must follow me; and where I am, my servant also will be. My Father will honor the one who serves me.”

Discipleship goes beyond a personal pursuit of drawing closer to the Lord. True disciples also prioritize the mission of bringing others to Him. They recognize that their actions and example can be a powerful testimony of their genuine faith in Christ.

Their practice of faith isn’t superficial; it’s sacred and always on their minds. They understand that their lives are a living testimony of the transforming power of the Gospel, and they strive to reflect Christ in all they do.

Moreover, disciples are intentional in their faith. Sharing the Word of God is not about seeking personal recognition or earning spiritual brownie points, but rather about helping others experience the beautiful and transformative saving power of Jesus. It’s about selflessly extending the love, grace, and truth of Christ to those who are lost or in need, with the sincere desire to see lives transformed by the Gospel.


Commit Luke 14:27 to memory.
