Are You a Disciple of Jesus Christ?

Description

It is my belief that every disciple is a believer, but not every believer is necessarily a disciple. So what exactly is a disciple of Jesus?

Time to grow up

The reason we need to know about discipleship is because Jesus told us to “go into all the world and make disciples . . . ” (Matthew 28:19).

But how can I make one if I am not one myself? It takes one to make one. It’s called “growing up” spiritually.

The Christian life is more than simply praying a prayer and getting “fire insurance.” It’s following Him, not only as your Savior but also as your Lord.

He wants to not only be your friend, but also your God. And some don’t seem to see that.

No prolonged infancies

Paul tells us in Ephesians 4 that God gave us pastors, teachers, and evangelists to help us mature and be equipped for the work of ministry. As one translation puts it:

“No prolonged infancies among us, please. We’ll not tolerate babes in the woods, small children who are an easy mark for impostors. God wants us to grow up to know the whole truth and tell it in love—like Christ in everything” (Ephesians 4:14-15 THE MESSAGE).

I like that term “No prolonged infancies.”

Some believers are “stunted in their growth.” Well, it’s time to grow up!
