Welcome to the delightful journey of discipleship! Jesus invites us to say an enthusiastic 'Yes!' to his beckoning call: Come close, draw near, and follow me. This is exactly what John the Beloved Disciple said long ago and it's our invitation to intimacy today. Becoming a 'beloved disciple' of Jesus is the focus of the 31 reflections contained in this devotional guide. Each reading covers one of the 10 traits of a healthy disciple (taken from Becoming A Healthy Disciple) or one of the 21 chapters of the Gospel of John which feature different portraits of Christ.
