Before we can “go therefore and make disciples,” we must first BE disciples. We cannot give what we do not have or teach what we do not know. What does it mean to be a disciple?
The Catechism sums it up neatly: “Becoming a disciple of Jesus means accepting the invitation to belong to God’s family, to live in conformity with His way of life: “For whoever does the will of my Father in heaven is my brother, and sister, and mother.” (2233)
How can we know our Father’s will? The first way is ask Him. In fact, it’s in the first prayer most of us ever learned. “Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.” When you say this prayer, ask God to reveal His will for your life. He taught us this prayer because it is His great desire that we learn to live the life He wants for us. He WILL answer.
