It’s impossible to be a disciple or a follower of someone and not end up like that person. Jesus said, “A disciple is not above his teacher, but everyone when he is fully trained will be like his teacher” (Luke 6: 40). That’s the whole point of being a disciple of Jesus: we imitate Him, carry on His ministry, and become like Him in the process.
Excerpt from Chan, Francis; Beuving, Mark (2012-11-01). Multiply: Disciples Making Disciples (p. 16).
I’d like to think that I am a disciple of Jesus, a Christ follower. Like those that came before me, when I felt the call of the Lord to follow I had no idea where we were going or what I would be doing. I just knew that my life needed saving. God knew that too which was why he sent Jesus to die on a cross and pay for my sins with his life. God loved me that much! Because I believe today that Jesus paid with his life for me, I choose to live my life in honor and service to Him. I follow. So as a disciple, I know that my life should be a reflection of his. Imitate Him, carry on His ministry and become more like Him every day. I should end up like Him!
How about you? Who are you following? All you have to do is look at how you act or speak and you will know:) Follow Jesus. Live a full life. Become like Him along the way!
