New Bible study – Are You a Disciple? – available August 3
[July 20, 2015]
Discover life beyond casual Christianity with Priority Ministries’ new Bible study, Are You a Disciple?, by Laurie Cole.
This 8-week, in-depth Bible study helps individuals and groups discover the difference between Christianity and discipleship with practical insights straight from the pages of God’s Word.
“I became a Christian when I was just a child,” said Laurie, “but in my twenties I came to a spiritual crossroads. My life and my marriage were falling apart. I was faced with two options. Option one was to continue doing life my way, as a pretty good religious person. It’s what I call casual Christianity. Option two was to accept Jesus’ call to ‘Follow Me,’ and become His disciple. I chose option two, to follow Jesus – to become a disciple – and I am so grateful that I did.”
Laurie outlines the differences between these two options by contrasting the 7 characteristics of casual Christians with the 7 distinctives of devoted disciples. “A Christian is a believer,” she said. “A disciple is a follower.”
