What is a Disciple?
A Disciple of Jesus is one who believes in Jesus for eternal life and is following Jesus with their lives.
To be a disciple we must worship God through Faithful Living and Generous Giving.
1 Since, then, you have been raised with Christ, set your hearts on things above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. 2 Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things. 3 For you died, and your life is now hidden with Christ in God.
To worship through faithful living, we must do two things:
First, we must set our hearts on things above (v.1).
2 Corinthians 5:17 says, “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!”
If you are a Christian the moment you said yes to believing in Jesus, you became a new creation. You are no longer the same person you used to be.
Second, we must set our minds on things above. Along with a change of heart, there should also be a change in our minds.
Our wants, and desires, are no longer the same. We have been made new.
Takeaway: If we believe in Jesus and choose faithful living we must start with a faithful heart, and a faithful mind.
