Who is disciple of Jesus?

It is rare to hear someone say, ”I am a disciple of Jesus”. Why is that? Are there any disciples nowadays? Is the situation as bad as Jesus suspects it to be, when he comes back?

I tell you that he will avenge them quickly. Nevertheless, when the Son of Man comes, will he find faith on the earth?"
Luke 18:8

At some point, peoples started to call disciples of as Christians. Does Christian mean disciple of Jesus today? If someone calls himself Christian, does he think that he is also disciple of Jesus? Or has the meaning of the word Christian become something else?

When he found him, he brought him to Antioch, and for a whole year they were guests of the church and taught a large crowd. It was in Antioch that the disciples were first called Christians.
Acts 11:26

When you look at the world, it seems that a modern Christian means something else than disciple of Jesus. Word Christian describes more of a person who belongs to some church facility. There seems to be very little in common with modern Christians to original disciples of Jesus. This raises also question of what the church is and does it have anything to do with what Jesus taught about being disciple. Is the church only a religious agency, which takes care of certain events? Is modern Christian church the same as it is in Bible?

In following parts, I have been gone through what Bible tells about who is disciple of Jesus and what it means. And here in next sections there is also said how you can become disciple. And it should be noticed that Jesus should be the one who really defines who is his disciple, not pope or some other religious leader.
