One of the greatest callings on a believer’s life is that of being a disciple and that of practicing discipleship. Discipleship is a lifelong prcess. A disciple is someone who is a trained student of the teachings of someone else. Discipleship then is the "process of learning about the teachings of another, internalizing them and then acting upon them." As Christians, we are called upon to be students of Christ, studying his teachings from scripture (The Bible), and making them a part of our lives.
So you may ask, what are the benefits of being a disciple, or why should you be involved in the discipleship process? Let’s review a few:
You walk in obedience to the Word. (Matthew 28:18-20)
You learn more about the Heart of God as you study His Word. (Psalms 119:89-96)
Your faith is strengthened to speak boldly about God. (Acts 3:11-26)
You reproduce the life of Christ in others. (2 Corinthians 5:14-21)
You become kingdom minded to see others grow in Christ. (Galatians 4:19)
We grow together as mature believers to carry out our God given life purpose. (Ephesians 4:11-16)
