Being a genuine disciple of Christ flows out of a relationship with Him. It’s about experiencing God’s grace, not earning His love through performance. A real relationship with Jesus Christ will produce a follower whose life looks progressively more like His life. Romans 12 provides a relational profile of an authentic disciple: someone who is surrendered to God, separate from the world’s values, sober in self-assessment, serving in love and supernaturally responds to evil with good. Christians who live out this kind of lifestyle are what we call r12 Christians. God is willing to go deeper and grow you into a real disciple – are you ready?
You want to change, you want to “do” life differently, but you just can’t seem to make it stick. Here’s what you need to know: there is a way to experience real and lasting life change, and it isn’t about trying harder, it’s about a completely new way of thinking. Chip talks about how to begin this process of life transformation.
