From the Back Cover
Our world these days is so hectic, so complex. Where do we turn for wisdom and guidance in navigating the ins and outs of life? There are many voices to listen to and many examples to follow, but we really need look no further than the Author of Life, Jesus. He taught and lived a way of life that was purposeful and pleasing to God. These six sessions will show you the value and the nature of a life of discipleship, as modeled by Jesus.
Experiencing Christ Together helps your group explore the five biblical purposes that make up a high-impact Christian life fellowship, discipleship, ministry, evangelism, and worship. Jesus perfectly lived out Gods purposes for his life, and he taught his followers how to do the same. As you walk in the footsteps of those first disciples by listening to and watching Jesus through these studies, you and your group will be transformed.
One small group leader put it this way: "The Experiencing Christ Together series has motivated me more than any other Bible study that I have ever been to. This Bible study gets to the heart of the mattermy character in Christand that has created action on my part."
