What does it mean to be a disciple of Jesus?

So, part of what it is to be a disciple of Jesus means that we are to learn about Him. We are to become a full-time student of Christ.

What does it mean to live our lives victoriously?

For Christians, living a victorious life has more to do with the attitude of the heart than it does with the circumstances around us. Paul asks the question in Romans 8:31, “...If God is for us, who can be against us?” Now we may feel at times that everything is coming against us. However, we need to remember that we have a Heavenly Father who steps between us and those people or things that would seek to harm us. He has called us His son or daughter! He has called us to be conquerors! How? How do we live victoriously and how do we act as conquering children of God?

What does “divinity of Jesus” mean?

What does “divinity of Jesus” mean or what does it mean that Jesus is divine? 2 Peter1:2-3a says, “Grace and peace be multiplied to you in the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord, as His divine power has given to us all things pertaining to life and godliness.” The Greek word used here for our English word divine is theios (thy-ahs). It is only used three times in the New Testament. Here it is used to mean divine as in godlike and in the other two places it refers to the Godhead or Trinity and is translated as “divine nature.” (See Acts 17:29, 2 Peter 1:4.)

And He who sat on him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness He judges and makes war. And He has on His robe and on His thigh a name written: KING OF KINGS LORD OF LORDS” (Revelation 19:11, 16). To get a clearer understanding of Jesus’ Second Coming, let’s compare.
