Discipleship: What it means to follow Jesus
Who is Jesus and what does it mean to be his disciple? It seems like a simple question with a simple answer! In this 6-week series, we will be looking at a section in the middle of the Gospel of Luke, at the key turning point where Jesus’ identity is made crystal clear – he is the Christ of God. What does it mean for Jesus to be the Christ? And what, therefore does it mean to be a disciple of Christ, a ‘Christian’?
Disciples of Jesus Christ
In our first sermon of this series, we’ll get to the heart of Jesus’ identity, and in light of that, the fundamental meaning of what it means to be Christian, a disciple of Jesus. Jesus is the Christ who is king and sufferer and so to follow him is to deny self and take up the cross.
Encouragement for Disciples
The call to follow Christ Jesus can seem to be difficult and daunting. He graciously provides experiences of his glory and majesty to encourage and enable ongoing faith and obedience. In the word of God and in the experience of the Spirit’s ongoing work of grace, we experience the glory and majesty of Christ Jesus.
