WHO IS A DISCIPLE ?

           Who do you think of when you think of “disciple”? do you think of wise men and women,  people of great sacrifice, humility, compassion  commitment, – people who picked up their cross and followed Jesus.  The 12 apostles were men of such stature, they were hand-picked by Jesus.

           Jesus tells us in  John 8: 31
"If you abide in My word,you are my disciples indeed."

           A disciple in Jesus' time was someone who followed a teacher or philosopher, some one who committed his or her life to Christ someone who sought to learn,follow,and share Him with others.

           Does this describe you ?
Unlike the original disciples, we can't physically spend time with Jesus but we can learn from Him by reading His word  and obeying His will for our lives.

          You can be a disciple today, if you are willing to pick up your cross and follow Jesus and let Him be your teacher and guide. Remember He said "If you abide in my word, you are My disciples indeed."
