Design a Disciple
Confirmation is saying yes to discipleship…a disciple is a follower, one who accepts and assists in spreading the teachings of another. A Christian disciple is a person who accepts and assists in spreading the good news of Jesus Christ.
Think about what the traits of a follower of Christ are. What is a disciple?
On paper, draw a person; add all the traits that are the traits of a disciple.
We can deepen our relationship with God by practicing our faith in everyday life. It is our actions, not just our words that make us Christians.
