At times in life we tend to go our own way instead of walking with God. In fact, sometimes we don’t just walk away from Him, we actually run! But if we truly belong to Him, He will not let us run forever. Often He will have to break us, wound us, in order to keep us from going astray and forgetting our dependence upon Him. These wounds might be painful, but they are really the marks of grace. They are proof that He knows us and loves us enough to keep us close to His side.
The Marks of a True Disciple
Are you just a believer in Christ, or are you a disciple of Christ? There is a difference between the two! His last words to the world were not, “Sit around and believe in me.” They were, “Go and make disciples.” But what does a true disciple of Christ actually look like? What does it really mean to follow Him? How do we know if we ourselves are disciples rather than just church-goers? In this series, we’ll explore these questions and more to make sure that we are living out the mission Christ has called us to live.
