Apprenticeship to Jesus
Finished up Gary Moon’s Apprenticeship with Jesus: Learning to Live Like the Master. He has exercises at the end of each chapter and it is designed to be done in 30 days. I read through it but did not do all the exercises. Would be a useful tool to use with someone else. I enjoyed Moon’s concluding remarks. (bold print is mine). Moon is quite a fan of Dallas Willard and after reading his book, I want to go back and re-read some of Willard’s books.
The practice of an apprenticeship with Jesus means waking up each morning with the primary purpose of being with Christ while learning to be like him. It is learning to live more and more moments in awareness of the Trinitarian reality the kingdom of God all around.
But the main thing is not what to do but what not to do. We should not make entering into apprenticeship with Jesus complicated. . . how does a person become an apprentice of Jesus? By doing the next right thing with him, until eventually you observe him doing the next right thing through you.
