    1 Chronicles 28



    1 Chronicles 28 

    A disciple serves God with a whole heart and a willing mind.

     9“As for you, my son Solomon, know the God of your father, and serve Him with a whole heart and a willing mind; for the LORD searches all hearts, and understands every intent of the thoughts. If you seek Him, He will let you find Him; but if you forsake Him, He will reject you forever.

    2 Corinthians 7



    2 Corinthians 7

    A disciple cleans himself from every defilement that he may perfect holiness in the fear of God.

    2 Corinthians 6



    2 Corinthians 6:

    A disciples is not unequally yoked together with unbelievers.

    14Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness? 15And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel?

    16And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.

    17Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you,

    18And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty. (KJV)

    2 Corinthians 5



    2 Corinthians 5

    A disciple walks by faith.

    7for we walk by faith, not by sight. (ESV)

    A disciple’s aim is to please God.

     9So whether we are at home or away, we make it our aim to please him. (ESV)

    A disciple allows the love of Christ to control him and he longer lives for himself but lives for Christ.

    14For the love of Christ controls us, having concluded this, that one died for all, therefore all died; 15and He died for all, so that they who live might no longer live for themselves, but for Him who died and rose again on their behalf. (NASB)

    A disciple is a new creature in Christ.

    17Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new. (KJV)

    A disciple is an ambassador for Christ imploring others on the behalf of Christ to be reconciled to God.

    20Therefore, we are ambassadors for Christ, God making his appeal through us. We implore you on behalf of Christ, be reconciled to God. (ESV)

    2 Corinthians 4



    2 Corinthians 4

    A disciple does not handle the Word of God deceitfully.

    1Therefore seeing we have this ministry, as we have received mercy, we faint not; 2But have renounced the hidden things of dishonesty, not walking in craftiness, nor handling the word of God deceitfully; but by manifestation of the truth commending ourselves to every man's conscience in the sight of God. (KJV)

    A disciple preaches Christ and not himself.

    5For we preach not ourselves, but Christ Jesus the Lord; and ourselves your servants for Jesus' sake. 6For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.

    A disciple focus on those things of God which are eternal and not the things of the world which are temporary. 

    18While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal.

    1 Corinthians 16



    1 Corinthians 16

    A Disciple is alert, he stands firm in the faith, he is strong, and he acts like a man. Everything he does is done in love. 

      13Be on the alert, stand firm in the faith, act like men, be strong. 14Let all that you do be done in love (NASB)

    1 Corinthians 13



    1 Corinthians 13

    A disciple loves others.

      1If I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, but do not have love, I have become a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal. 2If I have the gift of prophecy, and know all mysteries and all knowledge; and if I have all faith, so as to remove mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing. 3And if I give all my possessions to feed the poor, and if I surrender my body to be burned, but do not have love, it profits me nothing.  4Love is patient, love is kind and is not jealous; love does not brag and is not arrogant, 5does not act unbecomingly; it does not seek its own, is not provoked, does not take into account a wrong suffered, 6does not rejoice in unrighteousness, but rejoices with the truth; 7bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. (NASB)

     

    A disciple acts like an adult and puts away childish things.

     

    11When I was a child, I used to speak like a child, think like a child, reason like a child; when I became a man, I did away with childish things. (NASB)

    1 Corinthians 10



    1 Corinthians 10

    A disciple does not crave evil things.

     6Now these things happened as examples for us, so that we would not crave evil things as they also craved.

    A disciple is not an idolater.

     7Do not be idolaters, as some of them were; as it is written, “THE PEOPLE SAT DOWN TO EAT AND DRINK, AND STOOD UP TO PLAY.”

    A disciple does not act immorally.

     8Nor let us act immorally, as some of them did, and twenty-three thousand fell in one day.

    A disciple does not try the Lord.

     9Nor let us try the Lord, as some of them did, and were destroyed by the serpents.

    A disciple does not complain.

    10Nor grumble, as some of them did, and were destroyed by the destroyer.

    A disciple stands strong when tempted.

     11Now these things happened to them as an example, and they were written for our instruction, upon whom the ends of the ages have come. 12Therefore let him who thinks he stands take heed that he does not fall. 13No temptation has overtaken you but such as is common to man; and God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will provide the way of escape also, so that you will be able to endure it.

    A disciple flees from idolatry.

     14Therefore, my beloved, flee from idolatry.

    1 Corinthians 9



    1 Corinthians 9

    A disciple becomes a servant of all that he may win all for Christ.

    19For though I am free from all, I have made myself a servant to all, that I might win more of them. 20To the Jews I became as a Jew, in order to win Jews. To those under the law I became as one under the law (though not being myself under the law) that I might win those under the law. 21To those outside the law I became as one outside the law (not being outside the law of God but under the law of Christ) that I might win those outside the law. 22To the weak I became weak, that I might win the weak. I have become all things to all people, that by all means I might save some. 23I do it all for the sake of the gospel, that I may share with them in its blessings. (ESV)

    1 Corinthians 7



    1 Corinthians 7

    A disciple stays married.

    10And unto the married I command, yet not I, but the Lord, Let not the wife depart from her husband: 11But and if she depart, let her remain unmarried, or be reconciled to her husband: and let not the husband put away his wife.

    39The wife is bound by the law as long as her husband liveth; but if her husband be dead, she is at liberty to be married to whom she will; only in the Lord.

    1 Corinthians 6



    1 Corinthians 6

    A disciple does not bring a lawsuit against another believer.

    1When one of you has a grievance against another, does he dare go to law before the unrighteous instead of the saints? 2Or do you not know that the saints will judge the world? And if the world is to be judged by you, are you incompetent to try trivial cases? 3Do you not know that we are to judge angels? How much more, then, matters pertaining to this life! 4So if you have such cases, why do you lay them before those who have no standing in the church? 5I say this to your shame. Can it be that there is no one among you wise enough to settle a dispute between the brothers, 6but brother goes to law against brother, and that before unbelievers? 7To have lawsuits at all with one another is already a defeat for you. Why not rather suffer wrong? Why not rather be defrauded? (ESV)

    A disciple does not do wrong to or defraud another believer or anyone else.

    8But you yourselves wrong and defraud—even your own brothers!

    The unrighteous, the sexually immoral, idolaters, homosexuals, thieves, the greedy, the drunks, the abusive, and the swindlers will not go to heaven. 

    Don’t you know that the unrighteous will not inherit God’s kingdom? Do not be deceived: No sexually immoral people, idolaters, adulterers, or anyone practicing homosexuality, 10 no thieves, greedy people, drunkards, verbally abusive people, or swindlers will inherit God’s kingdom. (HCSB)

    A disciple flees sexual immorality.

    12“All things are lawful for me,” but not all things are helpful. “All things are lawful for me,” but I will not be dominated by anything. 13“Food is meant for the stomach and the stomach for food”—and God will destroy both one and the other. The body is not meant for sexual immorality, but for the Lord, and the Lord for the body. 14And God raised the Lord and will also raise us up by his power. 15Do you not know that your bodies are members of Christ? Shall I then take the members of Christ and make them members of a prostitute? Never! 16Or do you not know that he who is joined to a prostitute becomes one body with her? For, as it is written, “The two will become one flesh.” 17But he who is joined to the Lord becomes one spirit with him. 18Flee from sexual immorality. Every other sin a person commits is outside the body, but the sexually immoral person sins against his own body. 19Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God? You are not your own, (ESV)

    A disciple glorifies God in his body.

    20for you were bought with a price. So glorify God in your body. (ESV)

    1 Corinthians 5



    1 Corinthians 5

    A disciple does not associate with a believer who is sexually immoral, greedy, an idolater, verbally abusive, a drunk or a cheat. 

    9 I wrote to you in a letter not to associate with sexually immoral people. 10 I did not mean the immoral people of this world or the greedy and swindlers or idolaters; otherwise you would have to leave the world. 11 But now I am writing you not to associate with anyone who claims to be a believer who is sexually immoral or greedy, an idolater or verbally abusive, a drunkard or a swindler. Do not even eat with such a person. 12 For what business is it of mine to judge outsiders? Don’t you judge those who are inside? 13 But God judges outsiders. Put away the evil person from among yourselves. (HCSB)

    1 Corinthians 4



    1 Corinthians 4

    A disciple is a steward that has been found faithful.

    1 This is how one should regard us, as servants of Christ and stewards of the mysteries of God. 2Moreover, it is required of stewards that they be found faithful. (ESV)

    A disciple is willing to become a fool for Christ’s sake.

    10We are fools for Christ’s sake, but you are wise in Christ. We are weak, but you are strong. You are held in honor, but we in disrepute. 11To the present hour we hunger and thirst, we are poorly dressed and buffeted and homeless, 12and we labor, working with our own hands. When reviled, we bless; when persecuted, we endure; 13when slandered, we entreat. We have become, and are still, like the scum of the world, the refuse of all things. (ESV)

    1 Corinthians 3



    1 Corinthians 3

    A disciple is spiritually mature.

    1And I, brethren, could not speak unto you as unto spiritual, but as unto carnal, even as unto babes in Christ. 2I have fed you with milk, and not with meat: for hitherto ye were not able to bear it, neither yet now are ye able. 3For ye are yet carnal: for whereas there is among you envying, and strife, and divisions, are ye not carnal, and walk as men? 4For while one saith, I am of Paul; and another, I am of Apollos; are ye not carnal? (KJV)

    A disciple lays his foundation in Christ alone.

    10According to the grace of God which was given to me, like a wise master builder I laid a foundation, and another is building on it. But each man must be careful how he builds on it. 11For no man can lay a foundation other than the one which is laid, which is Jesus Christ. 12Now if any man builds on the foundation with gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, straw, 13each man’s work will become evident; for the day will show it because it is to be revealed with fire, and the fire itself will test the quality of each man’s work. 14If any man’s work which he has built on it remains, he will receive a reward. 15If any man’s work is burned up, he will suffer loss; but he himself will be saved, yet so as through fire. (NASB)

    A disciple keeps the temple of God holy.

    16Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you? 17If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are. (KJV)

    A disciple becomes a fool so that he may become wise.

    18Let no man deceive himself. If any man among you seemeth to be wise in this world, let him become a fool, that he may be wise. 19For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For it is written, He taketh the wise in their own craftiness. 20And again, The Lord knoweth the thoughts of the wise, that they are vain. 21Therefore let no man glory in men. For all things are yours; 22Whether Paul, or Apollos, or Cephas, or the world, or life, or death, or things present, or things to come; all are yours; 23And ye are Christ's; and Christ is God's. (KJV)

    1 Corinthians 2



    1 Corinthians 2

    A disciple’s faith rest in the power of God not in the wisdom of men.

    1 Corinthians 2: 1 And when I came to you, brethren, I did not come with superiority of speech or of wisdom, proclaiming to you the testimony of God. 2For I determined to know nothing among you except Jesus Christ, and Him crucified. 3I was with you in weakness and in fear and in much trembling, 4and my message and my preaching were not in persuasive words of wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power, 5so that your faith would not rest on the wisdom of men, but on the power of God. (NASB)

    1 Corinthians 1



    1 Corinthians 1

    A disciples does not quarrel and cause divisions in the church.

    10 I appeal to you, brothers and sisters, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that all of you agree with one another in what you say and that there be no divisions among you, but that you be perfectly united in mind and thought. 11My brothers and sisters, some from Chloe’s household have informed me that there are quarrels among you. 12What I mean is this: One of you says, “I follow Paul”; another, “I follow Apollos”; another, “I follow Cephas ”; still another, “I follow Christ.”

    13Is Christ divided? Was Paul crucified for you? Were you baptized in the name of Paul? 14I thank God that I did not baptize any of you except Crispus and Gaius, 15so no one can say that you were baptized in my name. 16(Yes, I also baptized the household of Stephanas; beyond that, I don’t remember if I baptized anyone else.) 17For Christ did not send me to baptize, but to preach the gospel—not with wisdom and eloquence, lest the cross of Christ be emptied of its power. (NIV)

    A disciple boasts in the Lord.

     31Therefore, as it is written: “Let the one who boasts boast in the Lord (NIV)

    Romans 16



    Romans 16

    A disciple stays away from those who cause divisions.

    17 And now I make one more appeal, my dear brothers and sisters. Watch out for people who cause divisions and upset people’s faith by teaching things contrary to what you have been taught. Stay away from them. (NLT)

    A disciple serves the Lord and not their own personal interests.

    18Such people are not serving Christ our Lord; they are serving their own personal interests. By smooth talk and glowing words they deceive innocent people. (NLT)

    A disciple obeys the Lord and is wise in doing right and innocent of any wrong.

     19But everyone knows that you are obedient to the Lord. This makes me very happy. I want you to be wise in doing right and to stay innocent of any wrong. 20The God of peace will soon crush Satan under your feet. May the grace of our Lord Jesus be with you. (NLT)
