Discipleship is Trinitarian
What is discipleship?
Discipleship involves each member of the Trinity. It involves the Father as our Dad, the Son as our protective older brother, and the Holy Spirit as our life changer. In Galatians 3:2-3, it says, “This is the only thing I want to find out from you: did you receive the Spirit by the works of the law, or by hearing with faith? Are you so foolish? Having begun by the Spirit, are you now being perfected by the flesh?” When it refers to the flesh, it means human activity, determination and will, wherein the believer desperately tries to do the will of God in his or her own efforts. But the Christian life is supposed to be lived through the empowerment of the Holy Spirit. It is not to be lived by self effort. That is very exciting and very challenging.
How do we get the Holy Spirit to help us? In the same way we became believers by trusting in Christ, making us all right with God the Father in Heaven, we are now supposed to be sharing our lives with God the Father day by day and hour by hour and relying continually on what Christ is doing for us. As we do that, the Holy Spirit will empower us. To put it simply, the more attention that we pay to God the Father and the more confidence we have in Christ, the more powerful the ministry of the Holy Spirit will be in our lives.
