TOPIC: A TRUE DISCIPLE OF JESUS
“Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost. Matthew 28:19.
A disciple of Jesus is a follower and learner of Christ whose mission is to share the truth of Jesus and restore hope into a broken world. Regardless of how we came to be born again Christians, we are all now enrolled into a life of full-time discipleship. Not only are you a follower of Christ, but you are called to be a living example, a leader, and to build up other disciples around you.
Perhaps you might be thinking, “I am not qualified for that.” Remember this: God is not looking to call the qualified; instead, He qualifies the called. Every step you walk as a disciple is a step in which you gain divine wisdom and guidance. And every day you walk alongside the glorious presence of Jesus is another day you will grow deeper as His disciple.
Some people have this idea that before becoming a disciple, we need to be perfect and sinless. But the reality is, we are all a work-in-progress. Moreover, we are only as capable as God makes us. We must step up to the front of the battlefield ready to learn, seek, and ask. And although we may find failure amidst our journey, failure is a lesson learned in the eyes of God. A disciple of Jesus is one who is willing to risk everything for the sake of sharing the hope of Jesus—the One Who can bring life to anything and anyone.
🖋️ Make today your day to stand tall as a disciple of Jesus Christ. Seek His wisdom, guidance, and daily transformation.
Acts 2:38-41; Mark 16:15
- Father, thank you for choosing me and paying the price for my redemption;
- Lord, give me the grace to boldly represent You in the world in Jesus name;
- Father, give me the grace for soul winning in Jesus’ name.
