In Matthew 28 v 18 to 20 we read that Jesus wants us to make disciples of believers (we are to teach them in other words).
Many people still do not understand what involves making disciples of believers.
Discipleship, in my opinion, can simply be stated as the search for truth.
In John 8 we see Jesus talking to some Jews who had become His followers.
He said that they would be disciples if they did one thing, and this was to continue (or abide, dwell and remain) in His Word (John 8 v 31).
He said that if the believers continued in His Word and became disciples they would know the truth and the truth would set them free (John 8 v 32).
Jesus gives us here the key to discipleship; it is the search for truth.
And we are told where to find the truth, in His Word.
For us that means the Bible, we find truth in the Word and this truth, if we know it, will set us free.
That is what discipleship is about; it is all about the search for truth and knowing truth.
So do you want to be a disciple of Jesus?
Do you want to be set free by knowing the truth?
Well, there is only one way to do this and that is to immerse (or continue) yourself into the Word of God.
Speak this out today…..”Thank you Lord that I can be your disciple through knowledge and understanding of your Word”.
John 8 v 31 and 32…..Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed; And ye shall know the truth, and thee truth shall make you free
