Freedom in Christ. A 10 week Freedom In Christ Discipleship Course starts on Tuesday, 19th April, (7.30 p.m. start and 9.30 p.m. finish) at Mortimer West End Chapel.
Even well-intentioned traditional discipleship can end up sounding like a long list of dos and don’ts, or a ‘how-to’ on Christian behaviour. Yet read any of Paul’s letters, and you get half-way through them before he starts telling anyone how to behave. Instead, he focuses on “the riches” we have in Christ (Eph. 1:18) – because it’s not what we do that determines who we are, it’s who we are that determines what we do. Freedom in Christ’s approach does the same. The teaching really helps us to grasp who we are in Christ, to understand and break free from the things that conspire to hold us back, and helps us to live the life of freedom and fruitfulness that Jesus promises. There is a kind and gentle ministry process called the Steps to Freedom, and an encouragement to commit to ‘renewing our mind’ (Romans 12:2). It’s identify-based discipleship, and it’s totally life-changing.
