In taking the time to describe the life of a disciple, we must be careful not to build our identity on doing these things, but rather understand these expressions as who we are. We have been conditioned to find our identity in what we do. However, Scripture tells us that we are children of God adopted through the grace of Christ, through whom we derive our identity. My identity is not what I do; I do out of my identity. Worship, community, and mission come out of who I am as a disciple of Jesus. This then is a response to what Jesus has done for us. It is in receiving his grace that we get to be disciples (Brad House, Community, p. 93).
