Jesus called us to go into the world and make disciples.  This is the mission of the church.  Lets begin to look at what is the character of a disciple?  Genesis 39 tells us the account of Joseph, a good example of a follower of Jesus Christ.

We want to be good disciples, then we must learn to love God.
