DISCIPLESHIP

ACCORDING TO THE BIBLE,
WHO IS A DISCIPLE?

A DISCIPLE is someone who has DELIBERATELY chosen to CONTINUALLY follow Christ, no matter what the cost!  Disciples are those who are willing to make any heart and lifestyle changes they need to make to fully follow the path that Jesus desires us to follow.

Has DELIBERATELY CHOSEN

 

THE COST – Disciples are those who have counted the cost and have chosen to pay it.  Picture the crowds walking with Him, heading ultimately to Jerusalem, not knowing that the cross was ahead.  Were they willing to follow Him all the way to the cross that was ahead of Him and them?  Are we willing (Lk. 14:25-33)?  The following is what Jesus taught that we must be willing to forsake to truly be His disciples?

"It does not take much of a man to be a disciple, but it takes all of him that there is." Dwight Pentecost
