Equipping represents the training and learning component of Discipleship while the word life awakens a desire for the true fulfillment found when one is discipled.

“I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing.” – John 15:5

“Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it.” – Matthew 7:13-14

“We proclaim him, admonishing and teaching everyone with all wisdom, so that we may present everyone perfect in Christ.” – Colossians 1:28

“All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.” – 2 Timothy 3:16-17

“Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles, and let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us. Let us  fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set  before him endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right  hand of the throne of God. Consider him who endured such opposition from  sinful men, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart.” – Hebrews 12:1-3
