As we near the end of our class, I thought I would repost this.
We’ve studied the Bible for 19 weeks now in our Disciple Bible class at First United Methodist Church of West Allis. Truly, it is a marvelous curriculum, and I am with a wonderful group. I have thought about how the Marks of Discipleship make a strong litany, and as we enter the New Testament this month, I am reminded of the orientation to Action for Disciples.
Disciples place themselves under the power and authority of Scripture–
–Free in the Word!
Disciples know that they belong to God, that God has claim on them–
–We act on our discipleship with Jesus, eternal Word!
Disciples acknowledge their rebelliousness, and repent–
–We turn away, sometimes many times.
Disciples respond to God’s call, enter the covenant community, express committment–
–called and shaped, sometimes many times!
