    1 Timothy 6



    1 Timothy 6

    A disciple pursues righteousness, Godliness, faith, love, and gentleness and fights the good fight of faith taking hold of the eternal life to which he has been called. 

     11But flee from these things, you man of God, and pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, perseverance and gentleness. 12Fight the good fight of faith; take hold of the eternal life to which you were called, and you made the good confession in the presence of many witnesses. (NASB)

    A disciple isn’t conceited and doesn’t fix his hope on the uncertainty of riches instead he hopes in God.  A disciple does good works and is generous and ready to share. 

     17Instruct those who are rich in this present world not to be conceited or to fix their hope on the uncertainty of riches, but on God, who richly supplies us with all things to enjoy. 18Instruct them to do good, to be rich in good works, to be generous and ready to share, 19storing up for themselves the treasure of a good foundation for the future, so that they may take hold of that which is life indeed. (NASB)

    2 Thessalonians 3



    2 Thessalonians 3

    A disciple doesn’t walk in idleness, instead he works quietly and earns his own living.

    6Now we command you, brothers, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that you keep away from any brother who is walking in idleness and not in accord with the tradition that you received from us. 7For you yourselves know how you ought to imitate us, because we were not idle when we were with you, 8nor did we eat anyone’s bread without paying for it, but with toil and labor we worked night and day, that we might not be a burden to any of you. 9It was not because we do not have that right, but to give you in ourselves an example to imitate. 10For even when we were with you, we would give you this command: If anyone is not willing to work, let him not eat. 11For we hear that some among you walk in idleness, not busy at work, but busybodies. 12Now such persons we command and encourage in the Lord Jesus Christ to do their work quietly and to earn their own living. (ESV)

    A disciple doesn’t grow weary in doing good.

    13As for you, brothers, do not grow weary in doing good. (ESV)

    1 Thessalonians 5



    1 Thessalonians 5

    A disciple appreciates those who have charge over them.  He loves them and lives in peace with others.

     12But we request of you, brethren, that you appreciate those who diligently labor among you, and have charge over you in the Lord and give you instruction, 13and that you esteem them very highly in love because of their work. Live in peace with one another. (NASB)

    A disciple admonishes the unruly, encourages the fainthearted, helps the weak, and is patient with everyone.  He doesn’t seek vengeance instead he seeks after that which is good.  He rejoices always.  He prays without ceasing and gives thanks for everything.  He doesn’t quench the Spirit, he does not despise prophetic utterances but he examines everything and holds fast to that which is good and abstains from evil. 

    14We urge you, brethren, admonish the unruly, encourage the fainthearted, help the weak, be patient with everyone.15See that no one repays another with evil for evil, but always seek after that which is good for one another and for all people.16Rejoice always; 17pray without ceasing; 18in everything give thanks; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus. 19Do not quench the Spirit; 20do not despise prophetic utterances. 21But examine everything carefully; hold fast to that which is good;22abstain from every form of evil. (NASB)

    1 Thessalonians 4



    1 Thessalonians 4

    A disciple abstains from sexual immorality.

     3For this is the will of God, your sanctification: that you abstain from sexual immorality; 4that each one of you know how to control his own body in holiness and honor, 5not in the passion of lust like the Gentiles who do not know God;6that no one transgress and wrong his brother in this matter, because the Lord is an avenger in all these things, as we told you beforehand and solemnly warned you. 7For God has not called us for impurity, but in holiness. 8Therefore whoever disregards this, disregards not man but God, who gives his Holy Spirit to you. (ESV)

    A disciple loves others.

    9Now concerning brotherly love you have no need for anyone to write to you, for you yourselves have been taught by God to love one another, 10for that indeed is what you are doing to all the brothers throughout Macedonia. But we urge you, brothers, to do this more and more, (ESV)

    A disciple lives a quiet life and minds his own business and works with his own hands so he is dependent on no one. 

    11and to aspire to live quietly, and to mind your own affairs, and to work with your hands, as we instructed you, 12so that you may walk properly before outsiders and be dependent on no one. (ESV)

    Colossians 4



    Colossians 4

    A disciple is devoted to prayer.

     2Devote yourselves to prayer, keeping alert in it with an attitude of thanksgiving; (NASB)

    A disciple conducts himself with wisdom in dealing with others.  He always speaks with grace. 

    5Conduct yourselves with wisdom toward outsiders, making the most of the opportunity. 6Let your speech always be with grace, as though seasoned with salt, so that you will know how you should respond to each person. (NASB)

    Colossians 3



    Colossians 3

    A disciple seeks those things that are above and sets his mind on these things. 

    1If then you have been raised with Christ, seek the things that are above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God.2Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth. 3For you have died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God. 4When Christ who is your life appears, then you also will appear with him in glory. (ESV)

    A disciple puts sexual immorality, impurity, evil desire, covetousness, and idolatry out of his life.

    5Put to death therefore what is earthly in you: sexual immorality, impurity, passion, evil desire, and covetousness, which is idolatry. 6On account of these the wrath of God is coming.   7In these you too once walked, when you were living in them. (ESV)

    A disciple puts anger, wrath, malice, slander, obscene talk, and lies out of his life and puts on the new self which is being renewed in the image of its creator. 

    8But now you must put them all away: anger, wrath, malice, slander, and obscene talk from your mouth. 9Do not lie to one another, seeing that you have put off the old self with its practices 10and have put on the new self, which is being renewed in knowledge after the image of its creator. 11Here there is not Greek and Jew, circumcised and uncircumcised, barbarian, Scythian, slave, free; but Christ is all, and in all. (ESV)

    A disciple puts on a heart of compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience.

    12So, as those who have been chosen of God, holy and beloved, put on a heart of compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience; (NASB)

    A disciple bears with others and forgives others and puts on love. 

    13bearing with one another and, if one has a complaint against another, forgiving each other; as the Lord has forgiven you, so you also must forgive. 14And above all these put on love, which binds everything together in perfect harmony. (ESV)

    A disciple lets the peace of Christ rule in his heart.  He lets the word of Christ dwell in him.  He teaches and admonishes one another.  He sings with thankfulness to God and whatever he does he does in the name of Jesus giving thanks to God.

    15And let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in one body. And be thankful. 16Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, with thankfulness in your hearts to God. 17And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him. (ESV)

    Philippians 4



    Philippians 4

    A disciple rejoices in the Lord always.  He lets his gentle spirit to be known.  He is anxious over nothing instead with prayer and thanksgiving he makes his requests to God.

     4Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, rejoice! 5Let your gentle spirit be known to all men. The Lord is near. 6Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.7And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. (NASB)

    A disciple dwells on those things that are true, honorable, right, pure, lovely, of good repute, excellent, and worthy of praise. 

     8Finally, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is of good repute, if there is any excellence and if anything worthy of praise, dwell on these things. 9The things you have learned and received and heard and seen in me, practice these things, and the God of peace will be with you. (NASB)

    A disciple learns to be content in all circumstances.

    11Not that I speak from want, for I have learned to be content in whatever circumstances I am. 12I know how to get along with humble means, and I also know how to live in prosperity; in any and every circumstance I have learned the secret of being filled and going hungry, both of having abundance and suffering need. 13I can do all things through Him who strengthens me. (NASB)

    Philippians 2



    Philippians 2

    A disciple humbles himself to serve God and others.

    3Do nothing from selfish ambition or conceit, but in humility count others more significant than yourselves. 4Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others. 5Have this mind among yourselves, which is yours in Christ Jesus,a 6who, though he was in the form of God, did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped, 7but emptied himself, by taking the form of a servant,b being born in the likeness of men. 8And being found in human form, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross. 9Therefore God has highly exalted him and bestowed on him the name that is above every name, 10so that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, 11and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. (ESV)

    A disciple lives and serves without grumbling and without disputes.

    14Do all things without grumbling or disputing, 15that you may be blameless and innocent, children of God without blemish in the midst of a crooked and twisted generation, among whom you shine as lights in the world, (ESV)

    A disciple holds fast to the word of life.

    16holding fast to the word of life, so that in the day of Christ I may be proud that I did not run in vain or labor in vain. (ESV)

    Ephesians 5



    Ephesians 5

    A disciple imitates God and walks in love.

    1Therefore be imitators of God, as beloved children. 2And walk in love, as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us, a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God.

    A disciple avoids sexual immorality, impurity, covetousness, filthiness, foolish talk and crude joking.

    3But sexual immorality and all impurity or covetousness must not even be named among you, as is proper among saints 4Let there be no filthiness nor foolish talk nor crude joking, which are out of place, but instead let there be thanksgiving. 5For you may be sure of this, that everyone who is sexually immoral or impure, or who is covetous (that is, an idolater), has no inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and God. 

    A disciple walks as a child of the light and takes no part in the works of darkness and he discerns what is pleasing to the Lord. 

    6Let no one deceive you with empty words, for because of these things the wrath of God comes upon the sons of disobedience. 7Therefore do not become partners with them; 8for at one time you were darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Walk as children of light 9(for the fruit of light is found in all that is good and right and true), 10and try to discern what is pleasing to the Lord. 11Take no part in the unfruitful works of darkness, but instead expose them. 12For it is shameful even to speak of the things that they do in secret. 13But when anything is exposed by the light, it becomes visible, 

    A disciple is wise and understands what the will of God is.

    15Look carefully then how you walk, not as unwise but as wise, 16making the best use of the time, because the days are evil. 17Therefore do not be foolish, but understand what the will of the Lord is.

    A disciple doesn’t get drunk instead he worships God and gives thanks to God always and for everything. 

    18And do not get drunk with wine, for that is debauchery, but be filled with the Spirit, 19addressing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody to the Lord with your heart, 20giving thanks always and for everything to God the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, 21submitting to one another out of reverence for Christ.

    A disciple loves and respects their spouse.

    22Wives, submit to your own husbands, as to the Lord. 23For the husband is the head of the wife even as Christ is the head of the church, his body, and is himself its Savior. 24Now as the church submits to Christ, so also wives should submit in everything to their husbands.

    25Husbands, love your wives, as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her, 26that he might sanctify her, having cleansed her by the washing of water with the word, 27so that he might present the church to himself in splendor, without spot or wrinkle or any such thing, that she might be holy and without blemish. 28In the same way husbands should love their wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself. 29For no one ever hated his own flesh, but nourishes and cherishes it, just as Christ does the church, 30because we are members of his body. 31“Therefore a man shall leave his father and mother and hold fast to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh.” 32This mystery is profound, and I am saying that it refers to Christ and the church. 33However, let each one of you love his wife as himself, and let the wife see that she respects her husband.

    Ephesians 4



    Ephesians 4

    A disciple walks in a manner worthy of his calling in humility, gentleness, patience, love, and unity. 

    1I therefore, a prisoner for the Lord, urge you to walk in a manner worthy of the calling to which you have been called,2with all humility and gentleness, with patience, bearing with one another in love, 3eager to maintain the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. (ESV)

    A disciple lays aside the old self and is renewed in the spirit of the mind and puts on the new self which is in the likeness of God.   

    17Now this I say and testify in the Lord, that you must no longer walk as the Gentiles do, in the futility of their minds.18They are darkened in their understanding, alienated from the life of God because of the ignorance that is in them, due to their hardness of heart. 19They have become callous and have given themselves up to sensuality, greedy to practice every kind of impurity. 20But that is not the way you learned Christ!— 21assuming that you have heard about him and were taught in him, as the truth is in Jesus, 22to put off your old self, which belongs to your former manner of life and is corrupt through deceitful desires, 23and to be renewed in the spirit of your minds, 24and to put on the new self, created after the likeness of God in true righteousness and holiness.

    A disciple puts away falsehood and speaks the truth.

    25Therefore, having put away falsehood, let each one of you speak the truth with his neighbor, for we are members one of another.

    A disciple does not give the devil an opportunity with his anger.

    26Be angry and do not sin; do not let the sun go down on your anger, 27and give no opportunity to the devil.

    A disciple does not steal but instead he labors with his own hands.

     28Let the thief no longer steal, but rather let him labor, doing honest work with his own hands, so that he may have something to share with anyone in need.

    A disciple doesn’t speak unwholesome words.

    29Let no corrupting talk come out of your mouths, but only such as is good for building up, as fits the occasion, that it may give grace to those who hear.

    A disciple does not grieve the Holy Spirit by his words or actions.

    30And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, by whom you were sealed for the day of redemption.

    A disciple puts away bitterness, wrath, anger, clamor, slander, and malice.

    31Let all bitterness and wrath and anger and clamor and slander be put away from you, along with all malice. 

    A disciple is kind to others, tenderhearted, and forgives others.

    32Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave you
