The Power and Price of Discipleship

John 18:17

The word Christian was mentioned once in the Bible. However, the word “Disciple” is mentioned in multiple places to describe the believer. A Christian disciple is one who follows Christ and asks what would Jesus do in every case.

A chirch goer and a true Christian disciple are different entities. In the words of Dr. D. K. Olukoya, a mere church goer is a deficit to the kingdom of heaven.

Salvation is free. It costs you nothing. On the other hand, discipleship is a costly journey. You have to forsake everything and follow Jesus fully. A popular hymn by Charles William Everest is titled “Take up thy Cross if my disciple thou wouldest be”. It talks so much about the power of discipleship and why it is necessary for every believer to live such lifestyle.
