What is Discipleship?
Scripture Reading: Colossians 3:12-17
In the New Testament, Jesus' disciples were students, pupils or learners, and Jesus was their teacher or in the Hebrew, Rabbi. Jesus told His disciples that He wanted them to be just like Him, their teacher.
During their time with Christ, the disciples had to learn loads of information and how to practically apply what they learned so they could help others.
The goal of discipleship - for Christ's first disciples and for us today - is Christ-likeness. Jesus is just as much our teacher today as He was for the twelve who followed Him. The ultimate goal of discipleship is to develop the discipline of living a Christ-centered life and demonstrating and teaching that to others.
