Equipping represents the training and learning component of Discipleship (Spiritual Direction vs. Spiritual Suggestion) 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 by the narrow gate. For the gate is wide and the way is easy that leads to destruction, and those who enter by it are many. For the gate is narrow and the way is hard that leads to life, and those who find it are few..” -Matthew 7:13-14
