Spiritual Discipleship: Principles of Following Christ for Every Believer

Moody Publishers / 2007 / Paperback

Stock No: WW482518


Product Description

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 ambition
  • the disciple's senior partner
  • the disciple's olympics
  • the disciple's right
  • the disciple's maturity
In addition, a "For Reflection" guide is included, making this book ideal for both individual and group study.

Publisher's Description

"Take time and trouble to keep yourself spiritually fit." — 1 Tim. 4:7, J. B. Phillips Translation

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.

True disciples pursue their Master. They know that God is watching over their faith, but they also take Scripture’s command seriously: "work out your own salvation with fear and trembling, for it is God who works in you." They take pains, by His power, to look more and more like Jesus.

This book will help you to be such a disciple. It examines Jesus’ teaching on what it means to follow Him, helping you become the kind of Christian Jesus wants you to be—not one devised by man or even other Christians. You’ll learn:

  • The profile of an ideal disciple
  • Conditions for discipleship
  • The tests that disciples endure
  • How disciples pray and grow
  • The posture and practices of a disciple
    And more

For anyone who wants to be not just a believer in Christ, but an imitator of Him, this book is a treasured resource.

Includes questions for reflection, ideal for both individual and group study.

    I found this book to be an excellent study on discipleship. So often our churches tell us that all we have to do is believe and we are saved. While that is true, there is so much more to be experienced in the Christian life. Oswald tells us how to be truly committed to Christ and what it really means to take up our cross and follow him. I highly recommend this book to anyone who wants a closer walk with Jesus.
