What is a disciple?

on January 15, 2014

What is defined as a disciple? My pastor asked the congregation this weekend what do we think is a disciple.

A disciple is a person who has the love of God in their heart and expresses it by their commitment to Jesus Christ through:

  • worship
  • prayer
  • study of scriptures
  • sacraments
  • serving with those in need

Someone thought to add “living or being apart of the community”, which is a great point. As a disciple we should be fully engaged in the community that we are sharing God’s love with.

Another one thought that if you define a disciple as the following, then everything else should make sense: “One who loves the Lord their God with all their heart, mind, and soul, and who loves his neighbor as himself.”

What would you add to this definition?
