HALLMARKS OF DISCIPLESHIP
A love for the Master.
A love for fellow-disciples. Jesus said, "All men will know that you are my disciples if you love one another." (John 13:35).
A love for the local church. They keep themselves and their families firmly rooted in its nurturing soil.
A love for learning. Disciples are teachable. They learn to think like Christ. (See Philippians 2:5.) They are avid Bible readers, eager to know Gods word and apply it.
Disciples are ready to be treated as Jesus was and is.Treasury of Faith index
