How do you know if you’re growing as a disciple, or making any progress following Jesus? Galatians 5:22-23 teaches us that the fruit of the Spirit is a sign of life and growth as a follower of Jesus.
A disciple is someone who is actually following Jesus. Discipleship happens when the Spirit applies the Word to our lives in the context of the church to help us follow in Jesus’ footsteps. In this message, we dig into the context of the church and discover that discipleship happens in three places: a gathered place, a scattered place, and a close place.
Every plant needs water, soil, and sunlight to grow, even though every plant grows differently. In the same way, every disciple experiences spiritual growth differently, and yet we all need three essential ingredients to continue growing spiritually.
What is a disciple? How do we live as disciples of Jesus? We turn to Matthew 4:18-22 and take our cues from Jesus.
