Passage: 2 Corinthians 3:17-18
Service Type:

Disciple or Disciple-making are terms used frequently in ministry. As Christians, we are encouraged to be a disciple of Jesus Christ. But one wonders what is a disciple? The word ‘disciple’ in the New Testament is translated from the Greek word mathetes. It refers to a learner or a student, someone who is apprenticed to a teacher to learn from him. But in the case of Jesus’ disciples, they were not just learning a certain body of knowledge but also a new way of life based upon a certain understanding of truths about reality.  Therefore, Christian discipleship stretches far beyond just having knowledge about Christ. Brothers and sisters, let’s be encouraged to be transformed into Christ likeliness and become disciples of Jesus Christ in the true sense by listening to the word of God through Pastor Alexa Ho.
