The Involvement of true discipleship

 
"True discipleship involves the whole man and its influence should be conspicuous in every department of daily living. The objective is conformity of the disciples's mind and will to the image of Christ, so that finally, when the Lord comes again, the whole man, body, soul and spirit may be changed and fashioned like unto him, immortal and incorruptible. But now, while he tarries, the purpose is to create and develop faithful and consecrated souls, upon whom he can depend, through whom he may witness and by whom his cause is advance in this world. The making of such through all the varied ways of life is the genius of discipleship."
