Discipleship is a commitment to the Christian life

Discipleship banner

To be a disciple of Jesus is to be committed to living a true, authentic Christian life.  Many of us are not sure what this means exactly.  We go to Mass, we say our daily prayers, we believe in Jesus, etc. But is this discipleship?  In its most basic form, discipleship is imitation of a master or in this case, the Master, Jesus Christ.

In the time of Jesus, if you wanted to be a disciple of a rabbi, for example, you would live with him, dine with him, pray with him, study his teachings, literally walk so close behind him you’d have the dust he kicked up all over your tunic!

While we cannot physically walk with Jesus in this way as to get dust all over us, as did his apostles, we can still live with Him, dine with Him, pray with Him, and study His teachings.  Over the course of the next few months, under the blog post heading “Discipleship is…” and “DISCIPLESHIP|Be transformed.” banner, we will explore what it means to be a true follower of Jesus with practical ways to grow closer in our relationship with our Lord.
