Discipleship is teaching others about being a disciple of Jesus.

Jared, that is a wonderful answer. It has the beautiful resonance of truth, thank you for those wise words.

discipleship is much deeper than most people want to go. in the bible a disciple is someone that learned from a rabbi, they left the family, their work (if they had it which most didn't) to follow daily, learning the interpretation of scripture that that rabbi gave, and adjusting their life to reflect the rabbi. to be a disciple of Christ is to do that, so by definition most people aren't disciples even though they say they are Christians.

Tracy, I can only speak on how the Holy Spirit discipled me. He taught me everything I needed to know and do. Once He taught me the lesson, or the principle I needed to learn, either by walking it out in real life or revealing the truth to me through the Word of God, He confirmed it through either a teacher of the word, a prophet or an apostle of God who came to town to teach. Does that help you out a bit? Can we help you more?

Tracy, I can give you some examples. I was taught the "key" to forgiveness, now I walk in a state of forgiveness. I was taught spiritual warfare, now I know, "We wrestle not against flesh and blood, etc.,"
I studied the word Joy until the cows came home because I wanted to experience Joy Unspeakable in 1 Peter. Since 1999, no one has been able to "steal" that Joy. Let us know if any of us can help you further. God bless you ((huggs)). donna6598

It's being brought up or trained in the disciplines of Jesus through the Holy Spirit, fellowship, submission, and the word of God.

Discipleship is===is a process that includes learning Bible truth. applying that Bible truth to everyday life, becoming like Christ, sharing Christianity with others, serving the church, and fulfilling the goals God has personally designed for each person. [Matt. 28. 19-20]

The only One we should follow is Jesus. As we read through the red parts of the Bible, we can be taught by what He said, did, and taught us. In the book of St. John Christ virtually said to them, You have been ambitious, envious, and also at strife for trying to be supreme. but this cannot be. You must love, as I love. By this shall all men know you to be Christians. Disciples of different teachers were known by their habits, or some creed, or a certain right. 1 John 3:11-18, 4:7-21

The meaning of discipleship is someone who follows. Whatever you are following, that is what you are a disciples of. We that are in Christ are considered disciples or saints of Christ. Apostles are those that minister the word. Teachers are those that teach the word. Prophets are those that the word of God is revealed through via the Holy Spirit. Those that translate in tongue are those that hear the word of God in all things. But buy and by we are all disciples & saints of Christ.
