Instant Reward for being Indiscipleship with Christ

Most people who assisted the ministry of Jesus Christ in one way or the other received instant rewards. The story of peter and his big fish haul was one of the incidents that illustrated the gains he received by offering assistance to the ministry of Christ by lending out his boat

Instant Rewards for being in Disciple-ship with Christ

Those who were in Disciple-ship with Christ

Disciple-ship is the act of assisting the ministry of Jesus Christ. When Christ was on earth, he went about doing good and blessing those who offered themselves in disciple-ship with him in one way or the other .

Peter a professional fisher- man had fished for so many years that even the fishes were familiar with his net as he dips it in the waters. That particular day he fished the whole day without catching even seaweed, he was frustrated and in the process of washing his net .Suddenly,the master came and asked to borrow his boat to go and share the word of God in the other side; reluctantly Peter offered him the boat. When he was done with his preaching, he commanded peter to dip his net at the same spot he had been fishing the whole day .Peter obeyed and there were so much fish that he hired hefty men from the nearby villages to assist him in drawing out the net from the waters

Mary Magdalene was so pretty and elegant that her hair was directly proportional to her lower back.She was a woman of questionable character until she met the master .This woman broke the most expensive alabaster oil and used it to wash the feet of Jesus Christ and clean his hair. Judas Iscariot saw this and shouted what a waste! .This money should have been used to help the poor and the needy: of course he doesn't give a damn about the poor and the needy. He just wanted to fill his own pocket too .Some time later, Lazarus the brother of Mary died and after four good days in the grave , Jesus Christ made it a point of duty to resurrect Lazarus, not because he was his friend. Was he the only friend of Jesus that died at that time? No. Simply because of the good work her sister Mary Magdalene did in disciple-ship with Christ

A little boy was sent to school with his lunch box containing two small loaves of bread and five sardines . However, he saw a big crowd following Jesus and joined them until it was too late in the evening and everyone was hungry .Jesus Christ needed a point of contact to feed this great multitude .Most people in that gathering had things bigger in their sacks and handbags but they refused to bring it out .However ,a little boy offered his lunch box and after feeding the crowd ,twelve baskets of fishes and bread were left .The little boy smiled home with this twelve baskets and thereby secured his family's feeding for at least some months, simply because he was in discipleship with Christ

      I do indeed. I try to live to become "just like Jesus". Of course I always fall short, but the word tells us:

      Those who say they live in God should live their lives as Jesus did. 1 John 2:6 NLT

      Great lens! I try to live my life in a way that will give glory to God. I'm not always successful, but then I'm only human.

      My life is to Glorify God and that is my purpose in life! One of my favorite sayings is "make disciples not convert to your opinion"
