Discipleship comes from the word disciple, which means: individuals who profess to learn and receive doctrines and precepts. This a key element in the walk of any born-again believer as he develops the relationship that brings about obedience to Jesus Christ. This is an integral part of the church as it fulfills the Great Commission that Jesus gave in Matthew 28:20. One cannot fulfill this commission if they never are taught. The first step in discipleship is that it’s about your relationship with Jesus Christ, spending time with Him in prayer and reading your Bible. Relationships require time, effort, focus and commitment. As you grow in grace and knowledge (2 Peter 3:18) your faith will become something that you will not only want to share with others but will have been equipped to do just that!
