As many claimed to be Christian and disciples nowadays, my question is what are the marks of true disciples of Christ in light of God’s word?
True Disciples Are Humble – Matthew 10:24-25
A follower of Christ is humble because a disciple is not above his teacher and a slave is not above his master. Our striving is simply to be like Him and submit our will to His. As a consequence of becoming like Jesus, we will be treated in similar fashion. The ungodly hated Jesus and so they will hate us too as we become like Him. Yet, we need not fear them even when severely persecuted because they cannot touch the soul for that belongs to God alone (vs 28). In addition, we are intimately known and cared for by God who even numbers the very hairs of our head (vs 30). A true disciple will walk in humility trusting God.
In the 4 books of the gospels we can see the marks of the true disciples.
Love Jesus above other people and other things.
Confess Jesus is Christ.
Believed the unconditional love of Jesus
Devote themselves fully for God’s kingdom
