William Barclay On Discipleship

20160815_085444[1]“Once someone was talking to a great scholar about a younger man. He said, ‘So and so tells me that he was one of your students.’ The teacher answered devastatingly, ‘He may have attended my lectures, but he was not one of my students.’ It is one of the supreme handicaps of the Church that in it there are so many distant followers of Jesus and so few real disciples.” (Barclay on Luke 14:24-33)
