Called to follow a Person

When we are called to follow Christ, we are summoned to an exclusive attachment to His person. The grace of His call bursts all the bonds of legalism. It is a gracious call, a gracious commandment. It transcends the difference between the law and the Gospel. Christ calls, the disciple follows; that is grace and commandment in one. “I will walk at liberty, for I seek your commandments.” (Psalm 119:45)

–Dietrich Bonhoeffer
