๐Ÿ‘‘ Disciples And Apostles

โ€œAnd when it was day, He called unto Him His disciples: and of them He chose twelve, whom also He named apostlesโ€ (Lukeย 6:13).

Many people fail to distinguish between our Lordโ€™s disciples and His apostles. They suppose they are the same. This is incorrect, however, for our Lord had a multitude of disciples while He had only a few apostles. His apostles were chosen from among His disciples, as we learn from the above message from Lukeโ€™s gospel.

A disciple is aย follower;ย an apostle is aย โ€œsent oneโ€. A disciple is aย learner;ย an apostle is a teacher. There is a great lesson here for us all to learn.

We mustย comeย before we canย go. We mustย followย before we can beย sent. We mustย learnย before we canย teach. We mustย listen to the Lordย before we canย speak for the Lord.

โ€œThus saith the Lordโ€, was the familiar phrase with which the Old Testament prophets began their messages. But at the head of the long list of Old Testament prophets we find Samuel, a young lad, saying:ย โ€œSPEAK LORD, FOR THY SERVANT HEARETHโ€ย (I Sam. 3:9).

Before we can do or say anything for God, then, we must listen to God. This explains why the reading and study of the Word of God is so important.

First, salvation itself comes by hearing and believing Godโ€™s Word, especially about Christ, and His death for our sins. Romansย 10:17ย says: โ€œFaith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the Word of Godโ€, and I Peterย 1:23: โ€œBeing born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the Word of God, which liveth and abideth foreverโ€. Then, having been saved, we can serve God acceptably only by diligent study of His Word. Perhaps the most important passage in the Bible on this subject isย II Timothyย 2:15:

โ€œSTUDY TO SHOW THYSELF APPROVED UNTO GOD, A WORKMAN THAT NEEDETH NOT TO BE ASHAMED, RIGHTLY DIVIDING THE WORD OF TRUTH.โ€ source
