Are you a Disciple of CHRIST JESUS?

It is very easy to recognize a true disciple of JESUS CHRIST. This is what a true disciple of JESUS The CHRIST looks like.

  4. Invite people to JESUS 
  5. Share JESUS

Let us be honest and do a self-examination of ourselves. Of the four characteristics listed above, how many are nonexistent in you? I will begin with myself; truth be told I do not imitate HIS example often enough.

Are you wondering did JESUS leave us examples to do in our everyday life? Here are just a few.

  1. HE spoke about the Kingdom of GOD

  11. HE forgives 
  12. HE was/is the perfect sacrifice for humankind 
  13. HE humbled HIMself 
  14. HE allowed HIMself to be abused physically, emotionally, and mentally for humankind

And I can go on and on about the examples JESUS has given to us for our everyday use with ourselves and with others.

I hope that you are a fellow disciple with me and if you are not, you may become one this very instant. All you need to do is.

  • Believe in JESUS
  • Have Faith in JESUS
  • Turn your Reliance onto JESUS and off of you and others
  • Trust in JESUS

Romans 10:8-11 The Word is near you, in your mouth and in your heart (that is, the word of faith which we preach): that if you confess with your mouth the LORD JESUS and believe in your heart that GOD has raised HIM/JESUS from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes in righteousness, and with the mouth, confession is made to salvation. The Scripture says, “Whoever [that means you] believes on HIM/JESUS will not be put to shame, not found guilty, not disgraced, have no regret, have no remorse, not embarrassed, not dishonored, and not discredited.”

If you believed Romans 10:8-11 and took action this is great! Welcome to the family, if we never meet here on earth, I will see you in our eternal home-Heaven with the FATHER, JESUS, and Holy Ghost/Spirit.
