-What is discipleship?
The word 'disciple' in the
original means 'a pupil', a 'learner'. Learn what?.John
8:31 "Then said Emmanuel to those Jews
which believed on him, If you continue in my word, then are you my disciples
8:19-21 "Then came to him his mother and his brethren and could not
come at him for the press. And it was told him by certain which said, Your
mother and your brethren stand without, desiring to see you. And he answered
and said unto them, My mother and my brethren are these which hear the
word of God and do it." John 13:35.
"By this shall all men know that you are my disciples, if you have love
one to another.".A
disciple therefore is a learner of love.
15:8 "Herein is my Father glorified, that you bear much fruit, because
because by doing this).you
are my disciples."
Disciples are those in alignment
If we too
are learners of love, we then are disciples:.John
12:26. Like those who had
to learn to be prophets in the Old Testament, we too, in this New Testament
era, need to learn what
Emmanuel taught his disciples about believing.
