You Might Be a Disciple ....


·        You are loving: 
John 13:35 English Standard Version (ESV)
By this all people will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.

·        You are in the word:
John 8:31 English Standard Version (ESV)
So Jesus said to the Jews who had believed him, “If you abide in my word, you are truly my disciples,

·        You put aside your plans and do what HE wants:
Mark 8:34 English Standard Version (ESV)
And calling the crowd to him with his disciples, he said to them, “If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross and follow me.

·        You are like Jesus:
Luke 6:40 English Standard Version (ESV)
A disciple is not above his teacher, but everyone when he is fully trained will be like his teacher.

·        You are willing to give up your old life:
Luke 14:33 English Standard Version (ESV)

So therefore, any one of you who does not renounce all that he has cannot be my disciple.

What do you think makes a believer a disciple?  I'd love to hear your thoughts!

I think a disciple is anyone who will follow Jesus; cling to his word, want to learn from him.
