“You are my friends if you obey my commands.”  [John 14:15]

TRUE DISCIPLES

“As long as you remain in my Word
you are my genuine disciples.”
[John 8:31 NCMM]

Our Master teaches that his true, real, or genuine disciples will remain, continue or abide in his teachings. Is it fair to conclude that such disciples or learners must have read and studied the Nazarene Sayings as found in the four Gospels? And not only these inspired works but also that “revelation” given to Jesus by The God and then delivered to His slaves? [Revelation 1:1-3]

To “remain” in the Masterís “word” means to continue in these by a course of study and obedience to Christís teachings. Those who claim to be “truly” his disciples ought to be able to unashamedly state they are very familiar with his “word” as taught, for example, in the Sermon on the Mount [Matthew 5-7], the Sermon on the Plain [Luke 6], and the Sermon on the Mount of Olives [Matthew 24, 25], the Sermon to the Thousands [Luke 12], and the Parables by the Sea Shore [Matthew 13]. These words alone are enough to guide the true disciple on a perfect spiritual path.

Abba bless you.
