What does Discipleship look like in real life? There are many good books about Discipleship and being a God Pleaser. But before you run out to buy them you should check with “the author and finisher of our faith”, Hebrews 12:2.
While we are to be a part of a local church and respect God’s appointed leaders we also have an individual responsibility to be growing in God’s Grace and Power. The reality is that authors and church leaders are examining the Bible, church history and other sources to write their books.
We are told to study to show ourselves approved of God in 2 Timothy. 2:15.
You and I have a great task, which God desires we succeed at described in Matthew 28:18 Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19 Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” If we are not becoming Biblical Disciples we will not be making Biblical Disciples.
Philippians 2:12 “Dear friends, you always followed my instructions when I was with you. And now that I am away, it is even more important. Work hard to show the results of your salvation, obeying God with deep reverence and fear.”
If you read the Bible from Cover to Cover you will discover what a good disciple or person after God's heart lives like. Then it is up to us to submit ourselves completely to God so that we may be conformed to His image.
