THE ESSENCE OF DISCIPLESHIP

“…And the disciples were called Christians first in Antioch…” (Acts 11:26)

From the text, we can deduct that followers of Christ were first disciples before they were even called Christians – a name popularly used today to refer to anyone that attends a Church – so before you could be recognized as a Christian, you must be an ardent disciple. So why must we become disciples and not just be satisfied with being born-again?

•    It is a step into becoming sonship.
•    It is the only way we are truly empowered to preach the Gospel.
•    It is the only way for us to truly resemble and represent Christ in speech and lifestyle.
•    In being disciples, we learn to spend quality time in prayer with Him, and not just to ask for things.
•    Discipleship ensures us of heaven.
