What does it mean to be a Christian?
Ask 100 people that question and you are likely to get 100 different answers. One reason people have such difficulty defining what a Christian should be is that the Bible never gives a definition. The followers of Jesus did not defer to themselves as Christians, it was a label placed on them from the outside. The early believers called themselves disciples, and the Bible is very clear in defining what a disciple looks like.
Jesus gave his disciples one word that should define them. What if we as his followers embodied this one word? What if our behavior was so consistent with this word that folks around us were drawn to us - and to God?
In Christian, you will learn:
- What one word should be descriptive of every disciple
- How Jesus followers should treat those who are outside the faith
- Why people love Jesus but can’t stand his followers
This participant’s guide with help you engage the teaching from Andy Stanley on the corresponding DVD and includes discussion questions for individuals and/or small groups, between-session devotions, DVD teaching overviews, and a leader’s guide.
