Be a Disciple
Often we claim to follow Christ, but we continue to talk the same, look the same and behave the same as the culture we live in. While we are attracted to Jesus’ forgiveness and his offer of abundant and eternal life, we struggle to really answer the call to be one of His disciples. No wonder we see the world around us getting worse and people calling us hypocrites. The American church is not really making disciples in the way that Jesus did.
In the book of Matthew, Jesus described what it meant to answer the call to come after Him and be one of His disciples. We can answer the call to be a disciple of Jesus. The text gives three traits of what it means to be a true disciple of Jesus.
