Could you say you are a disciple?
Not one of the original 12 of course. If you were one of those you would have been dead long ago.
I mean a 21st century disciple of the King.
There is one verse where Jesus gives the requirement, the litmus test, of knowing whether or not you are one of His disciples.
When we use the term litmus test in situations other than science it means it is a test or question that shows definite results. The Online MacMillian Dictionary says a litmus test is "an event, decision, etc. that provides a clear sign of what someone is really like or what their intentions are."
Jesus gives His litmus test in John 8:31b. He says, "If you abide (meaning live or stay) in My word, then you are truly disciples of Mine:"
So, are you?
Are you a disciple of Jesus?
