bible study | lesson 4 | called to be a disciple

When are we disciples?  The word “disciple” comes from the same root as the word “discipline”, which has as one of its meanings “training that develops both self-control and character.”

When then is Christian discipleship?  Perhaps the best definition is this:  Self training on the part of a believer in the Lord Jesus; A training that develops self-control, love, and Christian character.

Every believer, every Christian, has the obligation to become a disciple, constantly learning about the ways of the Lord and continually putting into practice those things which he has learned.

Ready to Go!

Begin today by praying for God’s guidance.  1 Cor. 2:13 tells us that godly wisdom is learned through the words of the Holy Spirit, the Bible.  Through prayer we can assure ourselves of profitable study as the Holy Spirit gives us godly wisdom.
