When Jesus was on the earth, he taught the gospel. The people who believed and followed him were called disciples. The disciples of Jesus Christ followed Jesus and tried to be like him. They chose the right and were blessed.
Jesus’ disciples were baptized. They could be cleansed of their sins and return to live with Heavenly Father.
Jesus’ disciples were fed. The people who followed Jesus Christ were filled spiritually by listening to his words. They were fed physically when Jesus performed the miracle of the loaves and fishes, when Jesus turned water to wine, and when they caught fish.
Jesus’ disciples were filled with hope. Because they knew that Jesus Christ was their Savior and tried to be like him, Jesus disciples were filled with hope for the future. The Apostle Paul said he was “In hope of eternal life, which God, that cannot lie, promised before the world began/” (Titus 1:2) Jesus disciples hoped for eternal life.
Jesus’ disciples were filled with love because they chose to be obedient. Jesus taught his disciples: “As the Father hath loved me, so have I loved you: continue ye in my love. If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love; even as I have kept my Father’s commandments, and abide in his love. These things have I spoken unto you, that my joy might remain in you, and that your joy might be full. (John 15:9-11)
We are blessed when we follow Jesus Christ. I will be a disciple of Jesus Christ by choosing the right.
