Transformational Discipleship – Forgiven. Restored.
Growing up on my family’s South Texas ranch, one of my regular jobs was to help work the cattle – gathering or moving the herd according to their needs. In the process, there always seemed to be a few cows who got confused, or turned around, and didn’t follow the others. We would go back and find the ones who were lost, coax them with food, and earn their trust so they would follow us safely to their destination. How is that ranch work similar to our own relationship with Jesus?
