Discipleship begins not with agreeing to go to Heaven but with being reconciled to God. What is it to be reconciled to God? Jesus painted two equally powerful pictures of God's great enterprise on Planet Earth. One is the picture of Family where God is the Father and we are all wayward children being called Home. The other is a picture of a loving and merciful King who calls us to abandon our rebellion and return to God our Father and King. This is the beginning of our discipleship journey to be reconciled to God.
