What Does It Mean to Follow Christ?
When we are gripped by the astonishing fact of Christ's love for us, we desire to draw close to Him. But what can we do to deepen our relationship with Jesus? What does He expect of us? And how can we be more like Him?
In Growing Your Faith, author Jerry Bridges, one of the most respected Bible teachers of our time, presents the essential elements of Christian life in a highly readable, surprisingly practical form. Jerry shows us how to:
- Feed our spiritual life by taking in the Scriptures
- Rely on the Holy Spirit in obedience and prayer
- Trust God during the trials of life
- Contribute our unique gifts to serve others
When we more fully open our hearts to the truth of His gospel and acknowledge the role of the Holy Spirit in our pursuit of holiness, we can make genuine progress in our spiritual lives. And that's a big part of what it means to follow Christ.
