When I heard that Dallas Willard had passed away on Wednesday, I found myself thinking about all the times I’ve written out something he said or wrote on an index card or a post-it note. When I looked back at some of the quotes that have impacted me I found this one:
A mature disciple is one who effortlessly does what Jesus would do if Jesus were him.
No mention of what they know. Only what they do and the inference that they do it because of who they have become.
