Be a disciple of Jesus


1) John 9:1-7 [incidence]

a) As he walked along, Jesus saw a man blind from birth.


b) His disciples asked him, “Rabbi, who sinned, this man or his parents, that he was born blind ?”


c) Jesus answered, “Neither this man nor his parents sinned; he was born blind so that God's works might be revealed in him”


d) Jesus continued, “As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world .”


e) Jesus spat on the ground and made mud with the saliva and spread the mud on the man's eyes and said, “Go, wash in the pool of Siloam” (which means Sent).


f) Then he went and washed and came back able to see.

NB: Jesus Christ is the light of the world . The man who was in darkness from birth comes to light and is able to see now.

2) Mark 6:56 [says]

“And wherever he went into villages or cities or farms, they laid the sick in the market places, and begged him that they might touch even the fringe of his cloak ; and all who touched it were healed. ”


NB: Yet, in those days, the people did not believe in him .


3) John 12:37 [says]

“Although he had performed so many signs in their presence, they did not believe in him.”


4) John 1:10-11 [say]

“He was in the world, and the world came into being through him; yet the world did not know him . He came to what was his own, and his own people did not accept hem.”


NB:1 They crucified him ; but Jesus resurrected on the third day.


NB:2 But now we can see everywhere in the world countless disciples of Jesus . They are performing countless miracles in the name of Jesus.

NB:3 Lord Jesus calls you too to be the disciple of Jesus. Do you say I am a sinner ? Do not worry.


5) In Luke 5:31-32 [Jesus says]

“Those who are well have no need of a physician, but those who are sick; I have come to call not the righteous but sinners to repentance.”


6) Luke 5:27-28 [say]

“After this he went out and saw a tax collector named Levi , sitting at the tax booth; and he said to him, “Follow me.” And he got up, left everything, and followed him.”


NB:1 In those days, tax collectors are considered as sinners . Jesus calls him also. He also followed him. Will you come to follow Jesus like Levi? You should come.


NB:2 Now a days, many people are in a confusion where to join. There are many sects. Which is the correct sect?


7) Matthew 16:18 [Jesus says]

“And I tell you, you are Peter , and on this rock I will build my church, and the gates of Hades will not prevail against it.”


7a) In John 21:15 -17 [say]

“When they had finished breakfast, Jesus said to Simon Peter, “Simon son of John, do you love me more that these ?” He said to him, “Yes, Lord; you know that I love you.” Jesus said to him, “ Feed my lambs .” A second time he said to him, “Simon son of John, do you love me ?” He said to him, “Yes, Lord; you know that I love you.” Jesus said to him, “ Tend my sheep .” He said to him the third time, “Simon son of John, do you love me ?” Peter felt hurt because he said to him the third time, “Do you love me?” And he said to him, “Lord, you know everything; you know that I love you.” Jesus said to him, “ Feed my sheep . “


NB: Jesus authorized only Peter to feed and tend the sheep by saying thrice, “ Feed my lambs , tend my sheep and feed my sheep .” Let us follow Jesus, only through Peter, the present Pope Benedict XVI and be a disciple of Jesus.


NB: We can see in Exodus 28:1- 3 where the

Lord calls Aaron and his sons to be the priests and in Leviticus 8:1-36 we see the Lord anoints them to be the priest of God almighty.


NB: During the period of Nehemiah, at the time dedication of the wall of Jerusalem , sought out the Levites the priests, in all their places to celebrate the function.


7b) Let us read Nehemiah 12:27

“Now at the dedication of the wall of Jerusalem they sought out the Levites in all their places, to bring them to Jerusalem to celebrate the dedication with rejoicing, with thanksgivings and with singing, with cymbals, harps, and lyres.”


NB: In those days, God's people dedicated the wall of Jerusalem only through the priest authorized by God almighty, not through the priests authorized by themselves .


NB: The present Pope Benedict XVI who is the Legal descended of Peter who was alone authorized by Lord Jesus Christ to be the High Priest of Catholic Church. Let us seek the Lord through the Catholic Church.

8) In 1 Chronicles 11:1 &2-3 [we see]

“Then all Israel gathered together to David at Hebron and said, “See, we are your bone and flesh.”


“The Lord your God said to you : It is you who shall be shepherd of my people Israel , you who shall be ruler over my people Israel .” So all the elders of Israel came to the king at Hebron , and David made a covenant with them at Hebron before the Lord. And they anointed David king over Israel , according to the word of the Lord by Samuel.”


NB:1 All the elders of Israel came to David and anointed David king over Israel because, the Lord God said to him that it was he who shall be shepherd of people Israel .


NB:2 Like that, Peter was alone authorized by Jesus to be the shepherd of followers of Jesus . So let us all who follow Jesus, follow through our present Pope Benedict XVI.
