Romans 5:10 tells us "...while we were God's enemies, we were reconciled to him through the death of his son." So a disciple is one who has repented of their sin and turned toward God. Jesus said in John 15 "I no longer call you servants...instead, I have called you friends." In repenting we move from enemies of God to friends of God. A disciple also seeks to embody "the message of reconciliation" (2 Cor. 5:19) as we "love our enemies and pray for those who persecute you." (Matthew 5:44)
