Disciple: Following Jesus, Media, Sermons | by Pastor David Parker

Disciple: Following Jesus

Today, we’re going to look at our identity as Learners of Jesus. Before ascending into heaven, Jesus gave his disciples (and us) a mission, which is famously known as the Great Commission (Mt 28:18-20). The heart of Jesus’ commission to his church is to make disciples. The term disciple refers to being a student, a follower, or a learner. Therefore, to be a disciple of Jesus means to follow him and learn from him. Now, if Jesus’ final commission was to make disciples, we must know what that entails today in our context and aim to be a disciple-making disciple church. Being a disciple of Jesus is the lifelong process of learning to trust and become more like Him in every sphere of life – and help others do the same.
