Enter The 7 Habits of Jesus. Pastor Robert Schmalzle does a superb job of framing discipleship habits (practices) as a response to God’s grace. As he says in the introduction, “The seven habits open our hearts to the wonder and mystery of Christ’s redeeming work in our lives, in our faith community, neighborhood, society, and in the world” (p. 27). This focus on discipleship as response continues with the very first habit: remembering our baptism. Martin Luther encouraged all believers to remember their baptism every day, for it was in baptism that God adopted us into God’s family and joined us to Christ’s death and resurrection.
Another example of discipleship as response occurs in his discussion of financial stewardship. Most resources title this section “giving,” but Schmalzle rightly refers to this as returning: after all, we are returning to God a portion of what already belongs to God. Good stewards know they don’t own anything – God owns it all (Ps. 24:1). One insightful corollary to this point is a comment he makes on giving time and talents in lieu of financial resources (p. 251). He notes that when people rationalize this decision, they mistake themselves to be the giver, when they aren’t: God is!Read more ›
