TAKE TIME AND TROUBLE TO KEEP YOURSELF SPIRITUALLY FIT.
(1 TIMOTHY 4:7 PHILLIPS)
As J. Oswald Sanders points out, true discipleship is more than intellectual assent to a belief in Christ-it involves the whole person and lifestyle.
Those with only a superficial belief will soon fall away from the faith, but Sanders says a true disciple would rather be presented with a difficult challenge than a soft option. Disciples are charged with the task of training themselves to be godly, because it is their responsibility to remain spiritually fit. Ever-fresh topics in this time-tested volume include:
¿ the disciple's second chance
¿ the disciple's olympics
¿ the disciple's ambition
¿ the disciple's right
¿ the disciple's senior partner
¿ the disciple's maturity
In addition, a "For Reflection" guide is included, making this book ideal for both individual and group study.
