This teaching on discipleship is based on how we can successfully live our lives for God (Eccl. 12: 13). Living for God means we have to be His disciples, that is, followers of His ways. We have to be disciplined in order to be successful disciples of Jesus and one of the definitions of discipline is "bring under control by training in obedience".     This means that discipline is unnatural to us. It has to be enforced by theoretical instruction & practical training.  It is through the instructions we receive from God’s word and the experiences of life that He takes us through that we learn the lessons of discipleship.

We have been focusing on how we can successfully live our lives for God. We have said before that living for God requires us to surrender our will to His will and allowing Him to be the center pole of our lives. It means allowing Him to be the Captain of our ship and the pilot of our plane. This is what discipleship is about. A disciple is a follower of a leader, teacher or master. We are disciples of Jesus Christ. Discipleship comes from the word discipline, so a disciple should have the discipline of the master. One of the definitions of discipline is "bring under control by training in obedience".

For God will bring every work into judgment, including every secret thing, whether good or evil”. (Ecclesiastes 12: 13 – 14 NKJV). How then can we live our lives for God? The following steps can help us to accomplish this.

: Jesus declared “I am the light of the world”. Naturally speaking, Jesus did not qualify to call Himself the light of the world because of His humanity but He was so bold to call Himself the Light of the world, the Bread of life and the Way, the Truth and the Life. Jesus was bold to declare His identity because He knew who He was and so must we. We must be bold about who we are otherwise the world will make us what we are not. In Matt. 5:14, Jesus said to his disciples "ye are the light of the world". He has left us in the world to shine His light. As Christians, God has called us to do the following.

Grace means the free and unmerited favor of God as it's shown in the salvation of man (Romans 5:8; Titus 3:5-7). Grace is free. It is kindness from God that we do not deserve (Eph. 2:1-6). Knowing Jesus is a supernatural experience. We are divinely chosen or selected by God to know Him and also to have eternal life we don't merit. Grace is divine assistance for regeneration and sanctification. The grace of God allows us to come into God's presence without any assistance. By grace are we saved through faith. It is the gift of God and not of works, lest any man should boast (Eph. 2: 8-9).
