As we continue to look at discipleship, we’ll consider the fact that when people met Jesus’ disciples, they knew that those men had been in the presence of Jesus Christ because of the lifestyle that they were living and because of the message that they were giving. And that’s because Jesus had discipled them. He accomplished what He wanted to in the lives of those men through discipleship.
