    Paper: Discipleship Because I became a Christian at an early age, there are many terms and ideas used in the church that I never pondered upon; I simply accepted them. For example, the term "disciple" I identify as one of Jesus' twelve closest followers, one of the paper characters placed on the felt board during Sunday school. Through my research, I have discovered that while accepting Christ through faith alone grants us salvation, to become a disciple of Christ, or practice discipleship, requires

    When thinking about Christian Discipleship, it is important to look at the fact that it is completely possible to be a Christian, without being a Christian Disciple (Willard, 4). I personally think of Christian Discipleship as taking a step beyond knowing and accepting Christ as a personal savior, and going out into the world to help transform others lives to be in accordance with God. Greg Ogden describes it best, in his book Transforming Discipleship: Making Disciples a Few at a Time, when he

    I am clear that God has call me to Christian discipleship, as I began the journey as a pastor, I accept the fact that my life is not mine anymore, I knew that I had to fully depend on Christ, I can surely say that I find joy through serving in the church.

Although a "calling" may not be as evident as it was for the first disciples, there are those who realise they have a "vocation". People who have a vocation are usually priests, nuns and those in religious orders. In the Readers Digest Guide to the Bible it says, "When God issues a call it conveys a divine command to human beings". For many different people discipleship means

    Studying St.Mark's Gospel and Christian Discipleship St. Mark's Gospel outlines and explains how to become a disciple of Christ, how to act and behave as one, what the costs and commitments are and what the reward is. The Gospel is not just for the followers of Christ, but also for anyone who is willing to listen. In the story of "The Call of the First Disciples", we see firstly that the disciples were not special or important people. They were simply fishermen. He asked sinners to follow

    The Effect of Discipleship on the Life of a Christian Today There are five ways in which discipleship might affect the lives of Christians today: Vocation, Service, Faith, Prayer and Worship. I intend on answering this question by examining these five examples. Vocation is the main way. This means a sense of being called to perform a task for God. Many Christians have a vocation to help those who are ill in a practical way. Christian medical workers may feel called to dedicate their lives

[16]” Aligning his presentation with the Holy Inspired Scripture of Jesus’ teaching, training, and leading his disciples. Encouraging Christians to return to their roots of becoming disciples, then becoming disciple-makers;

    How St. Mark's Gospel and Discipleship Can Affect Christians Today A disciple is a student or learner. Jesus chose twelve men to learn God's message from him. Jesus was no ordinary teacher; if men wanted to learn the Jewish law they would go and choose a Rabbi to study under. Jesus was different because he chose his followers. E.g. Mk 1:14-21 The first disciples Jesus chose were four fishermen Mk 1:14-21. The first two were Simon and his brother Andrew, he then called two more brothers
