Courageous Disciples Week 5, Day 5

Celebrate Your Call to Courage


Matthew 2:19-23

When I consider Joseph’s life and legacy, I see a man who stepped into the arena called life. He rumbled with the vulnerability to be subjected to the scrutiny of the Law with faithful obedience. Joseph learned the skill of integration. Tomorrow, you’ll have one more opportunity to celebrate your thoughts, feelings, and actions from this week. But, today, I want you to return to your call to courage.

Consider, like Joseph, what you’ve been hearing from God throughout the past five weeks. Reflect on your thinking. What are you thinking about being a courageous disciple? How is God inviting you to practice the faith of a courageous disciple?

Your call to courage may not have appeared directly related to your faith. However, as you’ve learned on this journey, integrating your thoughts, feelings and actions are the hallmarks of a wholehearted disciple.

As you continue to grow as a person of courage, may Joseph’s faithful example of listening, rumbling with vulnerability, and practicing the faith be a reminder to you that God is with you – today, tomorrow, and the next day.


What skill, insight, or learning will fuel your curiosity to be a courageous disciple in the days and weeks to come?


Put a post-it note on your refrigerator or bathroom mirror with the reminder to stay curious about your thoughts, feelings, and actions as you seek to follow Jesus.


Lord Jesus, I praise you for walking with me as I seek to become more like you. Help me to remain curious about my emotions, thoughts, and feelings in the days and weeks to come as I continue this journey of becoming a courageous disciple. Amen.
