A disciple is a learner and models her/his life after a teacher. For the Christian Believer, a Disciple is an enthusiastic Follower of Jesus, fully devoted to His teachings throughout the written Word=Bible.
Jesus taught His Disciples to deny themselves (trust the way of Jesus), take up their crosses daily (His mission, agenda, be Salt & Light), and follow Him (mimic Jesus, daily walk with Him, be devoted). “Not our way, but His way.” Is it easy? No. Is it “the way?” Yes.
