The TRUE Disciple
And this week is the complete start of the school year. What’s the great way to start this school year? Is the resume of Youth service at Victory Caloocan. As we resume the Youth service, we have a new series entitled “3D” or the “Three dimensions of discipleship”.
What does a disciple means? Is it just by believing Jesus? How can you know that you are a true disciple?
Ptr. Jay-R Ramirez said, “IF YOU HAVE MEDIOCRE RESPONSE TO JESUS TEACHINGS, YOU DON’T REALLY KNOW HIM!” What does it mean? If you follow Jesus half-heartedly, you truly don’t know who He is. It will look like just a professional wrestling shows, all your moves are just scripted.
Second, Ptr. Ferdie Cabiling said, “IF YOU’LL FOLLOW CHRIST, FOLLOW HIM 100% OR JUST BE THE BEST SINNER IN THE WORLD!” If you will follow Christ, give your everything. Just like what Jesus said, “You cannot serve both two masters” (Matthew 6:24). If you will serve both Christ and the world, how could you feel the true power of God? In short, if you’re in Christ, just go with Him; however, if you want to follow the ways of the world, go. It’s your choice.
How can we be a true disciple. Simple. It is written here:
To the Jews who had believed him, Jesus said, “If you hold to my teaching, you are really my disciples. Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”
– John 8:31-32
How? Just hold on to the teachings of Jesus as if your life depends on it. Yes, this is very very difficult, but by the power of God, by faith, you can do it.
