Discipleship is selfless. It is living for God, not self. The work of the Holy Spirit is to glorify Jesus (not the Disciples).
When Christ comes in and transforms a person, they are a new Creation (From the words of Paul in 2 Corinthians). As this transformation, or newness takes shape, we are compelled love God and love others. It's a road of discipleship. We look at Jesus' teaching in John to guide us into a life of discipleship.
