We all know Jesus’ death is important. His resurrection too. But what about his life? Why did Jesus spend thirty-three years on earth? The answer? To make disciples. He doesn’t call us to believe in him. He doesn’t call us to have all the right doctrines and faith (though that stuff is important). First and foremost, he calls us to follow him, to be his disciples, and that’s what we’re going to be talking about in this series.
If you’re looking to go deeper into this sermon series or where we’re heading with the spiritual disciplines, check out John Mark Comer’s book The Ruthless Elimination of Hurry. The television show The Chosen also gives a great picture of what discipleship to Jesus would have been like for the original disciples.
