Introduction

To what extent do you think your modern day disciple was successful in living up to the demands Jesus makes in the scripture texts? After learning all about the life and teachings of Maximillian Kolbe it would have to be said he fulfilled the life of a modern day disciple in every possible way or form. He is a mentor to all. He satisfied all requirements that a disciple must have. He taught the work of God to all when spending his time in the war camp of Auschwitz.

Middle

This is precisely what Kolbe had done. He became a monk and pursued the word of God, living his life in solitude, giving all he had to God. Everything he did was in memory of God. Maximillian Kolbe obeyed the Greatest Commandment. He did what was needed as a disciple: worshipping one God, our lord. He treated all around him equally 'loving all as brothers'.

Conclusion

If one man, no different from you or I, can be such a model and follow God so well, who is to say we cannot do this? For it is not one person. There are many modern disciples, fulfilling what God asks, who were no different from everyone else and have achieved global recognition for their efforts. So this may be to say from helping others you may actually benefit and you would most certainly feel better as a person. People just need to focus on what they are doing. These disciples excelled in discipleship because of determination. If someone as certain as them were to put their mind to similar things as Kolbe and others have done, children in the future, like me, will be praising them in essays similar to this. ...read more.
