Jesus gives us instructions on being His Disciple in Scripture.

Do you want to be a Disciple of Jesus? Then lets see what He Himself has to say about the requirements and what He expects from us.

Luke 14:15-35 NKJV
Now when one of those who sat at the table with Him heard these things, he said to Him, “Blessed is he who shall eat bread in the kingdom of God!”

[16] Then He said to him,

“A certain man gave a great supper and invited many, [17] and sent his servant at supper time to say to those who were invited, ‘Come, for all things are now ready.’ [18] But they all with one accord began to make excuses. The first said to him, ‘I have bought a piece of ground, and I must go and see it. I ask you to have me excused.’ [19] And another said, ‘I have bought five yoke of oxen, and I am going to test them. I ask you to have me excused.’ [20] Still another said, ‘I have married a wife, and therefore I cannot come.’

[21] So that servant came and reported these things to his master. Then the master of the house, being angry, said to his servant, ‘Go out quickly into the streets and lanes of the city, and bring in here the poor and the maimed and the lame and the blind.’ [22] And the servant said, ‘Master, it is done as you commanded, and still there is room.’

[23] Then the master said to the servant, ‘Go out into the highways and hedges, and compel them to come in, that my house may be filled.

[24] For I say to you that none of those men who were invited shall taste my supper.'”

[25] Now great multitudes went with Him. And He turned and said to them,

[26] “If anyone comes to Me and does not hate his father and mother, wife and children, brothers and sisters, yes, and his own life also, he cannot be My disciple. [27] And whoever does not bear his cross and come after Me cannot be My disciple.

[28] For which of you, intending to build a tower, does not sit down first and count the cost, whether he has enough to finish it- [29] lest, after he has laid the foundation, and is not able to finish, all who see it begin to mock him, [30] saying, ‘This man began to build and was not able to finish’?

image

[31] Or what king, going to make war against another king, does not sit down first and consider whether he is able with ten thousand to meet him who comes against him with twenty thousand? [32] Or else, while the other is still a great way off, he sends a delegation and asks conditions of peace. [33] So likewise, whoever of you does not forsake all that he has cannot be My disciple. [34] “Salt is good; but if the salt has lost its flavor, how shall it be seasoned?

image

[35] It is neither fit for the land nor for the dunghill, but men throw it out. He who has ears to hear, let him hear!”
