Discipling is Disciplining

In his book, The Pastor's Justification, Jared Wilson makes a clear distinction between the relationship between discipling and disciplining:

In discipling relationships, we are always disciplining one another, not chiefly or only in the fight against sin but largely through encouraging one another, edifying one another, teaching one another, and sharing one another's burdens.  In short, disciples know each other.

This is a very helpful (at least for me) way to think about it.
