In the historical model of apprenticeship, a pupil would spend time under the direct tutelage of a master so as to become more like the master. Jesus engaged his disciples in exactly the same way, inviting them to be with him so as to become like him. We have that same opportunity today. In Jesus, we find an invitation to partner our individual kingdoms with God’s kingdom and to share in his radiant life. God’s kingdom is open to anyone who will but merely step into it.
