"Faye"s daily words of encouragement" # 38 Todays word is: Disciples"

We all should be real disciples of God and Live by his true word and  not the interpretation of man.

"Faye's daily words of encouragement # 38 Todays word is : Disciples"

Definition of the word Disciples; An active follower or adherent of a teacher or concept.

Luke  chapter 11 - 1 : And it came to pass, that he was praying  in a certain place when he ceased, of one of his disciples said unto him, Lord, teach, us to pray, as John also taught his disciples.

John chapter 8 -31 : Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed.

John chapter 9 - 28 : Then they reviled him, and said, thou art his disciple; but we are Moses disciples.

Acts chapter 20 - 7 : And upon the first day of the week, when the disciples came together to break bread, Paul preached unto him, ready to depart on the morrow; and continued his speech until midnight.

We should all be disciples and  followers and users of the word of God.  If we all take what Jesus metaphorically, like some of our religious leaders and the higher ups does; Then God's words are reduce to what these leaders wants us to think.  I think the majority of his words should be used literally.

We as disciples are suppose to use the word of God and not use man's interpretation as the meaning there of, because man can lead us stray.  If we study the bible and ask God for his understanding , we want be brain washed into thinking  mans way. 

Real disciples of God will seek and search out a matter and not just except man's conclusion.  There  are some of us that like's man 's conclusion it tickles our ears; and it's what we want to hear, because the truth hurt sometimes; especially when we have to except it as being real.

      You hit the nail right on the head creativeone59! So many people rely on the word of man instead of the word of God, and then that's when things get twisted. True, we may not understand everything the bible may say, but with God's help, he will ensure we recieve the right answers. Thanks for this reminder.
