Genuine Discipleship

Luke 6:46-49
Contemporary Christianity, at least in America, manifests weakness and softness on many levels, including the areas of basic doctrine and ethics. At least one factor which contributes to this weakness is gross misunderstanding regarding the nature of genuine discipleship. Jesus corrects a similar misunderstanding in his day as he addresses some of his own disciples who wrongly separated confessing the truth about Him from submitting to His words. The result was that these disciples confessed the right things about Jesus but their life exposed their confession as hypocritical. In addressing this serious error, Jesus makes it clear by direct statement and parable that genuine disciples are characterized by true faith, reverence for Christ’s word, and obedience.
