DISCIPLESHIP
By Carol Elliott


The word Discipleship means to me, the training I receive after I became a disciple of Jesus.

I can think of all the amount of training I had to receive in order to get a well paying job as a computer operator. It took many hours of reading, practicing and going over many of the programs I had learned. I did this in order to convince my employer, that when I applied for the position, I wanted them to know that I would be an employee, who would be proficient in my job as a computer operator.

How much more do I want to please my Heavenly Father in becoming a disciple. I need to have the same amount of intensity in my training. In order to do this, I need to spend as much time as I possibly can in reading “The Word.” I also need to spend time with other Christians, learning from them, how to represent myself as a Christian (especially if I am new in the faith.) It is essential to spend as much time as I can in a given day, in prayer.

My knowledge needs to increase as I grow in my walk with Jesus. The Disciples spent quite some time, learning from Jesus. They needed to be taught how to pray, how to pray for the sick to be healed, and how to be a witness. Jesus had them with him as he did his Ministry, they received “On The Job Training.”

As a new Believer, it is imperative that I begin my journey in some sort of a Discipleship program, whether it involves a planned out daily Bible Study, or attending regularly, a Sunday School class.

It’s also necessary for every believer to have a mentor (someone who has been saved for a number of years) to speak into their life, giving them instruction on how to grow daily as a Disciple of Jesus.

I am always amazed at people who will work their buns off to succeed in the world, but think following Jesus is going to come miraculously. Great article!

This was nicely written. It was like chicken soup for my soul.
