The teachings of Jesus Christ shook the traditions that had arisen during the four hundred years between the testaments and He fulfilled the Law in a way that few had ever anticipated. To follow Him requires the utmost, yet those who do so find that they gain the abundant life that Jesus came to give.
In practice, discipleship was arguably the most difficult teaching of Jesus. In this book Mark Bailey explores what it means to be a disciple of Jesus Christ. He finds seven distinct characteristics that must be found in the life of anyone who ventures to "take up his cross" and follow Christ. I have listed them below with a few of the Scripture references that Bailey used to support them (so you can study their impact for yourself):
Supreme and incomparable love for Jesus - Matt. 10:35-37. Regular study and devotion to God's Word - Jn. 8:31-32; Heb. 5:11-14 Renunciation of yourselves as the authority and focus of our lives - Matt. 16:24; James 1:23-25; Gal. 5:16-25 A life of submission and sacrifice to the cross - Matt. 16:24; Rom. 6:1-14; 1 Cor. 3:3; 2 Cor. 4:11; Gal 2:20. Allegiance to Christ's compelling leadership -1 Kings 19:19-62; Matt. 4:18-22; Lk. 9:57,59,61,62. Recognition of the true ownership of our possessions - Lk. 14:28-33; 1 Cor. 6:19,20. Reflection of Christ's love in our attitudes and actions toward others - John 13:34-35; Jn. 15:1-17; 1 Tim. 1:5.
This is just the skeleton of the book and it already looks convicting. Well, it is...and it should be.Read more ›
