Who is a Disciple?
Are you a disciple?
In this episode, we explore six characteristics of a disciple. Briefly, a disciple of Jesus is someone who:
1) Embraces the mission
If our mission is to make disciples of Jesus Christ and transform the world, embracing the mission involves helping people become more like Jesus.
2) Practices the Faith
This is embodied in the heart, mind, and work of Christ.
3) Is in a Relationship with Christ, a Christian community, and their local context
Here we talk about the three-fold relationships that exist. You might find it easier to remember it this way: the Up, In and Out relationships.
4) Is Present
Being present is about living an integrated, authentic life.
5) Serves with Others
Here you ask the question, what can we be doing that no one else is doing? We also explore the simplest act of service EVERYONE can do.
6) Embraces their Local Context
Knowing and embracing the local context around the local church.
Remember, a disciple loves like Jesus because they’ve been loved by Jesus.
