What is the essence of being a Christian? Dietrich Bonhoeffer said, "The road to faith passes through obedience to the call of Jesus." From Mark 1 we learn that the essence of Christianity is a special relationship with Jesus called discipleship.
In this sermon, I laid out four points on the nature of discipleship:
1. Discipleship is a gift.
2. Discipleship is a relationship.
3. Discipleship is sacrificial.
4. Discipleship is transformational service.
This sermon was delivered at Christ Church Northside in Lafayette, LA on June 24, 2018. It was a wonderful experience to be a guest speaker for them. For more information about Christ Church, visit wearechristchurch.org.
