Jesus Teaches about Discipleship. Matthew 5-7
Point 1: Being Jesus' Disciple Requires a Clear Commitment. Luke 9:75-62
Do you think there is a difference between Salvation and being a Disciple?
Salvation comes through confessing Jesus Christ as Lord. (John 3:15, 16)
But as we walk through life, (the daily grind) we are to live as Deuteronomy 6 tells us: carry Christ everywhere.
But still there is a difference, Deuteronomy 6 is an Informal Discipleship. Formal Discipleship is an active period of instruction. Formal instruction occurs when one commits to a course of training ie. Theological or Ministerial programs, or preparing for Sunday School Lesson.
BUT Formal Discipleship can happen as we simply Walk God's Path for our lives, also. At the grocery store, praying for our family, friends, community, we are committing to draw nigh to Christ, we decide how much we give of ourselves to our Lord.
Both have a prerequisite - John 3:16...Accept Christ as Lord. Then as Jesus said in John 16:5-15 we have the Holy Spirit and He will teach us.
