Peeling an onion is perfectly analogous to the life of a disciple of Jesus. If you wish to remove only the surface skin, the task is simple. If your goal is to reach the core of the onion, you must remove layer after layer, often amidst tears, before reaching the core. Your goal as a disciple is to peel off every layer that the devil has placed on you, and to achieve a connection to your core--the person whom God created you to be.
