There is a wonderful description of Jesus and His mission in the Gospel of John. The concept of having a Culture of Discipleship is only possible if we put Jesus first in our lives and to consider Jesus in all we do.  Have you heard of the phrase called, “What would Jesus do?” This is an excellent phrase to help us continue in a culture of discipleship.

A youth group leader from Michigan, named Janie Tinklenberg, began a grassroots movement to help the teenagers in her group remember the phrase; it spread worldwide in the 1990s among Christian youth, who wore bracelets bearing the initials WWJD. Later, a sequel bracelet was generated with the initials “FROG,” to provide an answer to “WWJD.” FROG was an acronym for “Fully Rely On God.”

He who comes from above is above all. He who is of the earth belongs to the earth and speaks in an earthly way. He who comes from heaven  is above all. He bears witness to what he has seen and heard, yet no one receives his testimony. Whoever receives his testimony sets his seal to this, that God is true. For he whom God has sent utters the words of God, for he gives the Spirit without measure. The Father loves the Son and has given all things into his hand. Whoever believes in the Son has eternal life; whoever does not obey the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God remains on him. John 3:31-36, ESV.
