"Come, follow me," Jesus said, and I will make you fishers of men."
A student is not above his teacher, but everyone who is fully trained will be like his teacher.
"If anyone comes to me and does not hate his father and mother, his wife and children, his brothers and sisters--yes, even his own life--he cannot be my disciple. And anyone who does not carry his cross and follow me cannot be my disciple.
To the Jews who had believed him, Jesus said, "If you hold to my teaching, you are really my disciples. Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free."
"A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this all men will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another."
This is to my Father's glory, that you bear much fruit, showing yourselves to be my disciples.
