What is a Disciple? “Fishers of Men”

Matthew 5:13-16

When we know Christ, we start to look at people differently. As we spend time with Jesus as our head
(our “boss”), we begin to have a change of heart that leads to a change in how we use our hands. We
want to serve God wherever he has placed us. This means that our abilities, gifts, and learned skills are
all empowered and on call for the Lord’s mission of making disciples of all nations (Real-Life
Discipleship Training Manual
, 37).

Think about your greater purpose. God has you where you are so you can be on mission with him. Whether you are at work, school, out shopping, or at home, you have opportunities to influence others. You are salt and light!
