    When you gave your life to Jesus did you become a convert or a disciple in the body of Christ?

    There are millions of christian converts in the world today. But how many concider themselves as disciples of Christ.? Is there a difference between a convert and a disciple?

    If we look inside we do not see. We must hold the hand of a child. and let them look inside. We are not converted or students we are children.
    When we are children we live in Christ. When we look and try to decide we are not in Christ.
    We do battle as men. But we must be to Christ as children for thought is for the Magi and direction is for the soldier.
    We are not called to know, we are called to faith.
    Let this day me fail. For in failure I must rely. And in reliance I must give up and be born anew. And in that newness I am reborn and a child again.
    Let us not convert or teach. Let us be the first child in a meadow running after butterflies and the moon.
    Let us always return to God.

    I became and am BOTH as I know you are.   Yes there is a difference and it is clearly explained in scripture, though few churches make a distinction these days.
