WHAT LORD WOULD YOU HAVE ME DO; AND THEN LORD WOULD I DO IT?

FOLLOWING THE LORDS' LEAD COMES IMMEDIATELY TO MIND. ANYONE, A LEADER, A PROPHET, BUT ABOVE ALL ONE WHO FOLLOWS!

EASY TO SAY; HOWEVER A COMPLEX DUTY, JESUS IS A HARD ACT TO FOLLOW.

WHEN I THINK ON DISCIPLESHIP, I THINK ON ALL THAT IS VIRTUOUS, AND IN WONDERMENT AND AWE, I CONSIDER HOW ONE COULD MASTER SUCH A JOB. YES, JOB I SAY, BECAUSE MUCH WORK IS REQUIRED IN DISCIPLESHIP. DISCIPLESHIP IS AN AWESOME DUTY AND DISCIPLINE IS THE CORNERSTONE OF REPRESENTATION OF OUR LORD AND SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST.

DISCIPLESHIP REPRESENTS A TRUST, A COMMITTMENT, A SPIRITUAL MESSAGE OF ACTION THAT PORTRAYS A DESIRE TO EXPRESS SELFLESS DEVOTION, WHICH EXPRESSES AND POSSESSES QUALITIES OF TRUST, LOYALTY, SACRIFICE, RETRIBUTION, RESTORATION, ACCEPTANCE AND ABOVE ALL ELSE LOVE.

DISCIPLESHIP REPRESENTS TO ME A COMMITTMENT, A TRUST SUCH AS THAT OF A LOYAL FRIEND ONE TO THE OTHER.

DISCIPLESHIP IS "lIFE BY THE SPIRIT" ONE POSSESSING AND IMPLEMENTING THE ATTRIBUTES OF (GALATIONS 5:22-23) (22 BUT THE FRUIT OF THE SPIRIT IS LOVE, JOY, PEACE, PATIENCE, KINDNESS, GOODNESS, FAITHFULNESS,23 GENTLENESS AND SELF
CONTROL. AGAINST SUCH THINGS THERE IS NO LAW).

AND LACKING NONE OF THESE, ONE CAN TRULY BE CONSIDERED TO UNDERSTAND DISCIPLINESHIP.

THESE SCRIPTURES ARE THE EMBODIMENT OF DISCIPLESHIP CHARACTERISTICS; BUT ABOVE ALL ARE WHAT JESUS CHRIST OUR LORD LIVED, TAUGHT, SACRIFICED AND UTIMATELY GAVE HIS LIFE, IN ORDER THAT WE MIGHT LIVE.

SO WOULD NOT OUR DISCIPLESHIP REPRESENT A SACRIFICE IN KIND TO, RELEASE OUR EARTHLY DESIRES AND EMBODY THOSE CHARACTERISTICS THAT DISTINGUISHED JESUS AS OUR LORD & SAVIOR, TO TAKE UP OUR CROSS AND FOLLOW HIM.
