what makes a disciple a disciple ? Mark one continues

Today we continue reading Mark chapter one for answer. 

What does Jesus see in a disciple ?

Jesus sees the inside. He sees a willing heart, a desperate desire to follow the way , the truth , and the life . The true light . Those who can see the true Light. They can hear the call of the true Shepherd and follow Him without hesitation. He sees the simple faith in them, in the One sent by God , the Anointed One. They know the Messiah prophecy . They believe when they see Jesus.

Seeing their inside, Jesus needs not bother with their external: professions, qualifications, family background, education, social and economic status, political and religious positions…

Jesus also knows that they will respond to His call without hesitation. They will leave all baggages and come when He says , Come and follow Me.
