BEING A TRUE DISCIPLE OF CHRIST

AN ASSURANCE OF PROSPERITY – Psalm 1:1-3

If you walk in godly counsel

If you stand not in the path of sinners,

If you sit not in the seat of the scornful;

If you delight in the Law of the Lord,

And if you meditate in God’s Law day and night.

You will be established, and you will, therefore, bring forth fruit in season, and whatsoever you do, will prosper.

That is your prosperity is SURE.

BEING A TRUE DISCIPLE

A Disciple is a personal follower of Jesus; one who accepts and assists in spreading His doctrines.

It is to willingly covenant that you are His disciples.

This covenant is demonstrated as we worship and serve Him.

Making a covenant to be a disciple of Christ is the beginning of a walk with God.

DISCIPLESHIP

Discipleship is inevitably becoming more like Him.

Becoming like Him and being one with Him is the very definition of true discipleship.

Being a disciple of Jesus Christ means being an example of Him.

It means being a missionary of His.

It means to serve others through Him.

It means being a believer of Him.

Basically, all true Christians are disciples of Christ.
