What is Discipleship|

|

 
What is discipleship and what is Jesus calling us to in Matthew 28:18-20?  
 
Is this a command, or a suggestion; does it mean we are just to evangelize and let people find their faith on their own, or does this mean we are to lead others and teach the precepts of the Scriptures and the character of our Lord? Does it require obedience and action on our part, or are we disciples just by being a Christian and being in a church on Sundays?  

What is Discipleship?
 
God does not ask us to seek converts, He simply asks us to do Discipleship. Discipleship is modeling and teaching Christians the precepts of the Bible-mainly prayer, doctrine, Christian living, and worship. Yes, we are still to evangelize, but that is not our main mission and call! When we evangelize, we must realize that it is the role of the Holy Spirit to bring people into an intimate relationship with God. This is an act of divine intervention and grace.  

What is a Disciple?
 
A Disciple is one who grows in Christ and in so doing models and teaches Christians the precepts of the Bible, prayer, doctrine, relationship, Christian living, service, and worship, to name the main ones.

The Cost of Discipleship Part 1
It costs everything! However, the rewards are limitless as we are entrusted to a Savior who loves us more deeply and rewards us more completely than we could ever comprehend. He desires the best for us, He has a plan and purpose for us in the kingdom of God, and He wants us to spend eternity with Him. The Cost of Discipleship Part 2

His call, above all else for us as Christians, of what God's will is all about, and of what we are to be doing in our personal lives and in our churches is. Discipleship! Nothing else is more important, period. We Are To Have the Attitude of Christ!

Are you chasing your desires or our Lord?
God's Enduring Word!
Is the power and love of God enduring in you? Is your Christian life having results to it? The word "therefore" is referring to the results, conclusions, or applications that are to be in our lives from the reasons given. Christ Brings Division! nswers
