DISCIPLESHIP IN THE NEW TESTAMENT By Bro Gbile Akanni
The subject of discipleship is one of the key teachings that must be taught and should be the teaching of a life time in every Christian gathering. It is impossible to be Christian if you are never a disciple. The disciples of Jesus were called “Christian ” not because they bear a certain name, they were referred to as “little Christ ‘” not just because they dress in a certain way. They were called Christians because they have once been disciples and have learn the ways of Jesus as well as His teachings. In the recent generation, we have several people who thought Christianity is just a religion they have to be identified with. They thought it’s just about the dancing, wearing of special gowns and speaking eloquently that made one a Christian. How would you be a “little Christ ” if you don’t even know or understand the teachings of Christ? How can you expect to enjoy the heritage that is in Christianity if you don’t even understand the principles of following Jesus?. This is a sound teaching on the issues of Christian doctrines. You will be blessed by it .
