What is a “disciple”?

Dallas Willard

I ask pastors, “Does your gospel have a natural tendency to produce disciples?” By “disciple” I mean someone who is learning from Jesus how to lead their life as he would lead their life if he were in their place. The New Testament defines a disciple as someone who is with Jesus, learning how to be more like him.
