Discipleship !

Jacob had twelve sons, Jesus had twelve disciples. God fulfilled His promise to Jacob by expanding his seed like stars of the heaven and sand of the sea. In the same way Jesus promised to his disciples that " All power in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations........"-Mathew 28:19(NAB).
 Love to Serve 
"So He sat down, called His twelve disciples, and told them 'If anyone wants to be first he must be last of all and servant of all'."-Mark 9:35(ISV).
"So after He had washed their feet, and had taken His garments, and was set down again, He said unto them, know ye what I have done to you? Ye call me Master and Lord: and ye say well: for I am so I am. If then, your Lord and Master, have washed your feet; ye also ought to wash one another's feet. For I have given you an example, that ye should do as I have done to you. Verily, verily, I say unto you, The servant not greater than his lord; neither he that is sent greater than he that sent him. If ye know these things, happy are ye, If ye do them"-John 13:12-17(KJV)
Fill the Gap
Then Jesus said to His disciples "If anyone would come after me, he must deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me".-Mathew 16:24(NIV)
Be imitators of God, therefore as dearly loved children and live a life of love. "Just as Christ loved us gave Himself up for us as a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God"-Ephesians 5:1,2(NIV)
Do the Dew
"He told them, 'The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into His harvest field'."-Luke 10:2(NIV)
"Therefore go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit"-Mathew 28:19(NIV)
Bear for Christ
"Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you and falsely say all kinds evil against you because me".-Mathew5:11(NIV)
You are Great
"However, do not rejoice that the spirits submit to you, but rejoice that your names are written in heaven"-Luke 10:20(NIV)
"Jesus said to them, 'Truly I will tell you, at the renewal of all things, when the Son of Man sits on his glorious throne, you who have followed me will also sit on twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel'"-Mathew 19:28(NIV).
In God,For You!
