You’ve probably heard the term “Eat my dust.”  That’s a statement recognized in our culture as an in-your-face mockery to a losing rival.  “I’m ahead of you! Eat my dust!”  But there is an old saying from back in Jesus’ day.  May you walk in the dust of your Rabbi.  Israel is full of dusty regions of dirt.  And they walked everywhere.  May you walk in the dust of your Rabbi.  The idea being that you would follow your Rabbi so closely and with such zeal that you would be covered in the dust kicked up from his sandal.  


On the beach in Mark 1:14–20, Jesus called disciples.  He believed in them to follow him and do what he does.  Jesus is calling you to be a disciple.  We are called to have faith in Christ, yes.  But know this: Jesus is calling you to be a disciple. Not simply to know what He knows...but to be LIKE Him!


To be a disciple means to use your gifts and talents to glorify God every day.  To be a disciple means that you walk in the dust of your Rabbi. 


Here at Advent Lutheran Church we like to take our direction from Scripture (the Bible) and the Holy Spirit.  In the Gospel of Matthew chapter 28 we read the words that Christ spoke, "Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything that I have commanded you. And remember, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”


We are called to be and make disciples of Jesus Christ.  We do that by sharing God's grace and serving God's Kingdom.  We hope you'll join us as we all strive to be disciples of Jesus Christ!
