When you read the subject line of today’s devotional you might have been annoyed and answered to yourself, “Of course I am a disciple! I accepted Christ years ago!” I’m glad that is so but is conversion all there is to discipleship. Weren’t disciples also people being taught to observe all things that Christ commanded? Wasn’t that what Christ taught in the Great Commission? Look at today’s devotional, think it through, and then answer whether or not you are a disciple. God bless you.
Because of Calvary,
Matthew 28:18-20 (ESV)
18 And Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19 Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in[a] the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”
“Discipleship is the integration of what we believe into our everyday lives and relationships. It involves three things: (1) knowing what we believe, (2) living what we believe, and (3) passing on what we believe.” [Juli Slattery, Rethinking Sexuality: God’s Design and Why It Matters, (Colorado Springs, CO: Multnomah, 2018), p. 21]
