The word the New Testament uses most often to describe the church’s relationship to Jesus is disciple.
Not apostle. Not Christian. Not prophet. Not servant. No other word comes close to “disciple”.
Disciple: a follower, a student, a learner.
Our main job as Christians is to follow, learn from, and be a student of Jesus Christ. Seems obvious, right?
- I know what Jesus said, but what I believe about sexuality is…
- I know what Jesus said, but what I think about money is…
- I know what Jesus said, but what I feel about ______ is…
Is it any wonder that the main word the New Testament uses to describe our relationship to Jesus is “disciple”?
If it were only so obvious.
