A disciple of Jesus Christ is first and foremost an apprentice undergoing a training. John 14:12. The trainer is the greatest teacher Himself our Lord Jesus. Matthew 11:28-30.
A disciple of Jesus is in a school that he cannot really graduate because the ultimate goal of his training is for the disciple to be like His Master Jesus Christ in perfect Character. 1 John 3:2.
A disciple of Jesus is a soldier of the Cross. One of His greatest weapon given to him by his Master against the forces of the kingdom of Satan is a life of continuous prayer. Luke18:1. Luke 11:1. Romans 12:12.
Finally, a disciple of Jesus Christ can be appropriately described in the words of Winston Churchill “A riddle, wrapped in a mystery inside an enigma “.
Ask disciple Peter in Luke 5:1-11, by the time the Master finished with him, a few minutes sermon from his transformed lips brought 3000 souls to the Kingdom of God and his shadow brought healings to many.
A disciple of Jesus is a history maker, he is on the verge of breakthroughs as long he keeps his eyes on His Master. Romans8:19.
His greatest Achilles heel is Sin.
Thank God He has an advocate 1 John2:1.
