DISCIPLE – Take a step

When Jesus gave His marching orders to the Church at the end of Matthew’s Gospel, He told us to 'go and make disciples of all nations'. Developing disciples – learners, followers, apprentices of Jesus – was right at the heart of what He sent His apostles to do.

Yet it is easy, in the story of Scripture and the whirl of modern life, to miss what that actually means. What makes a follower of Jesus? How do we learn to be like Him? We want to imitate Jesus, and obey what He commanded, but how does that actually happen? That’s where Paul’s letter to the Philippians can help us.

Philippians is a wonderful letter from which to learn about discipleship. It isn’t written to correct behaviour or doctrine (like many of Paul’s letters), but simply to express friendship, thank the church in Philippi for a gift, and talk about how Jesus shapes the ordinary Christian life. This makes it a happy letter, and a very practical one. It also includes a wide range of experiences – success and failure, hardship and victory, past and future, abundance and poverty – and considers how to find joy in Jesus in each of them.

On Sundays, in groups, and individually with our daily devotionals, we will be studying the book over eight weeks. Each section will focus on a different aspect of discipleship, and will help us learn to follow Jesus, whatever our situation.
