A Disciple is a pupil or follower of a religion, a person, or a movement. Christians are to be disciples of Jesus (Luke 14:26,27). They follow in the teaching and example of Christ. It should be noted that a disciple is a convert but not all converts are disciples. As disciples, Christians are to bear their cross daily (Matt. 16:24) meaning that they are to live and die for Him if necessary (Matt. 16:25).
