MFM Daily Devotional 26 October 2023 MESSAGE
The Bible affirms that a disciple is a learner, open and teachable. He or she will put Christ first in all areas of his life. A disciple is committed to a life of purity and is always taking steps everyday to separate himself from sin. If you see anyone who is not taking action to be free from sin, the person is not a disciple. Your body is the temple of God. You cannot do anything you want with it, and you must keep your body pure. So, a disciple is committed to living a life of purity.
The Bible says you should put off all the former conversations, the old man and then move close to Jesus. A disciple is a person who has a daily life of intimacy with God and is developing in his prayer life. Jesus gave us an example. You must have a daily devotional life. You must observe your quiet time everyday: all disciples do their quiet time everyday and at that time, nobody can disturb them. In Mark 1:35, the Bible says that Jesus rose up a great while before dawn to observe His Quiet Time and commune with His Father.
True disciples of Jesus put everything away like phone or television and devote that time to the Almighty. Besides, a disciple has the heart to witness to others. He or she will be talking to others about Jesus and will not be afraid to share the gospel. The departing charge of Jesus was: “Go and convert the world to your classroom.” So if you see somebody who is not interested in preaching Christ, ministering to others and doing evangelism, the person is not a disciple.
An important hallmark of a genuine disciple of Jesus Christ is his love for others and his passion for winning souls for our Master, Jesus Christ.
I encourage you to do a thorough self-examination. Are you truly a disciple of Jesus? If you need to make amends, do so today!
