What is Discipleship?
A disciple is a learner. It speaks of a teacher-student relationship.
True discipleship is outlined is outlined in Luke 9:23, "...If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me." This biblical commitment to discipleship involves at least the following five actions:
1. Desire (If any man)
2. Decision (will come after me)
3. Denial (let him deny himself)
4. Dedication (take up his cross daily)
5. Determination (and follow me)
