Discipleship Part XVI
In this series of posts, I am sharing some short thoughts from each chapter of Dallas Willard’s book The Great Omission and then some brief personal reflections.
Chapter Fifteen: Jesus the Logician
Dallas demonstrates how Jesus was the greatest thinker to walk the earth and that if we are going to be his disciples, we must recognize his brilliance and look to him as the master of all knowledge. “He constantly uses the power of logical insight to enable people to come to the truth about themselves and about God from the inside of their own heart and mind” (189).
When I came to Christ during the summer before my Senior year at college, my intellect came alive. Ever since then I have had a hunger to learn, to grow and to live deeper. Reading how Jesus interacted with each person and group in a unique way got me to thinking deeper. His parables act like a mirror for me, they help me to reflect on Him and who I am.
