Being a disciple of Jesus is an issue of devotion rather than duty. Before Peter began the most important act of his lifediscipleshipJesus didnt ask him, How many chapters of the Torah did you read today? or Are you attending services at the synagogue each week? or Did you give your tithe today? No, before Peter began his journey of discipleship, Jesus asked him, Do you love Me? Arron Chambers thinks that we are asking new disciples of Christ the wrong questions and that its time to start truly following the example of Christ by asking of disciples what Christ asked of Peter: devotion, not duty. In Devoted, Arron presents a new paradigm for discipleship: falling in love with Jesus. This approach to discipleship emphasizes passion for Jesus as opposed to a plan for following Jesus.
