The Greek word "disciple" literally means "pupil" or "learner." When used in conjunction with Jesus, the term disciple came to mean an adherent to the person and teachings of Jesus. What does that look like on the ground? Here's a great three-prong definition we use at Man in the Mirror. We like this so much because the terminology comes straight from the Bible, so can be used across all traditions.

A disciple is:

1. "Called" to live in Christ

(salvation)

2. "Equipped" to live like Christ and

(growth)

3. "Sent" to live for Christ

(love and deeds)
