How do I become a Disciple of Jesus Christ?

(Written by Peter Voigt)
What is a disciple?
A Christian disciple is a person who accepts the sacrifice of Jesus Christ, repents from his sins, and receives forgiveness from God the Father. He acknowledges Jesus Christ as his Saviour and Redeemer and assists in the spreading of the good news of Jesus Christ.

Being a disciple is a process by which disciples grow in the understanding of God’s Word and are equipped by the Holy Spirit to overcome the trails and temptations of this present life.
This requires studying God’s Word on a daily basis, praying and having a living relationship with Jesus Christ and obeying His commands. A disciple should always be ready to give his or her testimony and to disciple others to walk in His way.

“Instead, you must worship Christ as Lord of your life. And if you are asked about your Christian hope, always be ready to explain it.” (1 Peter 3:15 New Living Trans)
