ARE YOU A DISCIPLE?


“Jesus said to the people who believed in him, “You are truly my disciples if you remain faithful to my teachings.” 

John 8:31 (NLT)


 
We are in a generation where there is abundance of information and pluralism of thoughts, concepts of life and teachings.
There has been more teachers in our time than ever.
This is because of the several media platforms available now. This wasn’t the case in some years back.
 
There are people who lack the integrity and skill to be teachers. Yet now, with an internet data, and a smart phone, everyone wants to create a content and to share their opinions or assumptions as authentic knowledge. And you will have some gullible people running after those thoughts.
It is imperative for every disciple of Jesus, to give attention to only the teachings of Christ.
Your mark of discipleship is TO CONTINUALLY REMAIN FAITHFUL TO THE WORD (or teaching of Christ).
 
It is not how long you have been a disciple of Jesus, it is how long you will continue to be a disciple of Jesus.
 
You must intentionally imbue focus in the teachings of Christ.
 
It is interesting how some believers turn to the myths and old fables of this world.
The people of the world cannot teach you the reality of the Kingdom.
For example, your unbelieving lecturer doesn’t have the spiritual understanding of the kingdom life. Therefore, he/she doesn’t have the  authority to teach you how to  fellowship with God. He is not the one to tell how you should be attending Church meetings.
 
The people of this world have their terms and as you are in Christ you function by different set of rules.  
You cannot be in Christ and think like the world. 
You must uphold and esteem the teachings of Christ in your heart.
 
A true disciple of Jesus, is a deviation to the systems of this world.
 
He/she doesn’t live by the thought patterns of this world; but delights in the Word of Christ.
 
He/she doesn’t interpret love as the people of this world do. A true disciple of Jesus walks in the unconditional love of Christ.
 
A true disciple is a doer of the word of Christ and not a hearer only. He/she follows and continues in Christ no matter the storm, suffering or persecution.
 
The persuasion of a true disciple is that, nothing can separate him/her from the love of Christ.
 
Dear Disciple of Jesus, do what the Lord tells you to do through His word, not what the world informs.
 
ARE YOU A TRUE DISCIPLE OF JESUS?

DIG DEEPER
(Colossians 3:16; John 15:8; John 13:35; Romans 8:37-39; Colossians 1:28-29; 2 John 1:9; John 15:7-8)
 
WE PRAY
 That the delight and persuasion of the word of God shall be intensified in our hearts more and more; to make us doers of the word and not hearers.
 
– That he word of Christ shall deeply dwell in our hearts and we shall not yield our minds to the old fables and false teachings of this world. 
 
BIBLE READING IN THE YEAR 2023
Ezekiel 9 – 11
Ephesians 5 – 6
 
DECLARE THESE WORDS:
– I don’t patten my life according to the standards of this world.
 
– I walk in the unconditional love of Christ.
 
– I delight myself daily with the word of Christ.
 
– Nothing can separate me from the love of Christ.
 
– I continue in Christ no matter the storm, sufferings and persecutions.
 
– I am a true disciple of Christ.
 
Hallelujah!!!!
