Disciple – A brand new discipleship course from Freedom in Christ
10 January 2017, 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
Along with a group of other participants, and leaders from Life Church, Disciple will help you know who you really are, who God really is and what He has called you to do.
Traditional discipleship teaching can sound like this: “do this every day”, “don’t do that any more”, “successful Christians behave like this”. If this is the extent of our discipleship we end up simply acting like Christians. Even if we manage to do and say the right things it doesn’t necessarily lead us to freedom, or a fruitful life.
Read any of Paul’s letters to the churches and you’ll usually get half way through before you find instructions on how to behave. First he concentrates on what’s already been done; the “riches” we have in Christ (Ephesians 1:18). Because it’s not what we do that determines who we are – it’s who we are that determines what we do.
The approach of Disciple is to first help people grasp all that happened the moment they became Christians: who we are in Christ; the truth of God’s unconditional love; why there is no condemnation; why we don’t have to languish in cycles of sin, negative thinking and hopelessness. There is also a process which helps us to apply this firmly in our lives.
