A breath of fresh air.
"...what makes authentic disciples is not visions, ecstasies, biblical mastery of chapter and verse, or spectacular sucess in the ministry, but a capacity for faithfulness. Buffeted by the fickle winds of failure, battered by their own unruly emotions, and bruised by rejection and ridicule, authentic disciples may have stumbled and frequently fallen, endured lapses and relapses, gotten handcuffed to fleshpots, and wandered into a far country. Yet they kept coming back to Jesus."
