What is Discipleship? Mark 1:17

Good morning everyone,
I come to you this morning asking you a question that we should all ask ourselves!  What is discipleship?  We need God intimately, and we need Him desperately.  Without Him we are lost, but with Him comes the hope that we have life eternal.  Committing your life to Him means there is a second step!  You have just made first string and now the game is in your hands.  He asks us all to live our lives looking for the opportunities to evangelize.  Wait a minute Paul!  You may say that you're not a preacher or an evangelist!  The beautiful thing is that you don't have to be called to be a preacher, but guess what; we have all been called to be disciples!  In Mark 1:17, Jesus called out to them, "Come, be my disciples, and I will show you how to fish for people!"  You may say that you can't go up to somebody and witness to them and talk to someone who is a total stranger and tell them about Jesus.  But the closer you get in your relationship to Jesus, the more He will teach you how to be obedient to Him in serving others.  It isn't what we say but more in what we do!  If we live our lives in a way that pleases the One who created us, He will show you how and when to encourage those you come in contact with!  We just need to be available.  Knowing God is the first step to being a follower.  Following Him means just that!  Not just His principles and His ideas but more about His actions!  When you are available, He will show You exactly how He wants you to carry it out!  God Bless you as you serve Him with all your heart!
Your brother in Christ,
