We will have a poor understanding of our mission if we do not understand our identity as disciples of Christ. This message unpacks what it means to be a disciple of Jesus beginning with Jesus’ own words in Matthew 4:18–22. Here and throughout Scripture six primary marks of a disciple are identified: a transformed heart, a transformed mind,  transformed affections, a transformed will, transformed relationships, and a transformed purpose. Every disciple should be aware of, depend on, and seek to grow in God’s transforming work of making us more like Christ.
