Call to Discipleship

What is a New Testament Christian? He is a heart-believer in a crucified and risen Saviour and Lord. But our churches are filled with believers who do not continue in His Word and so are poor disciples. Salvation is free – not cheap- and we have only to trust Christ to be believers. But discipleship calls for all we are and have.

[Vance Havner]

Acts 5:14 ... And believers were the more added to the Lord, multitudes both of men and women.

John 8:31 ...Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed;

Acts 1:8 ... But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.
