How to follow Jesus

The gospel is not just something we believe, it affects every part of our lives. The gospel invites us into God’s kingdom and gives us a mission and a lifestyle. This subject looks at Jesus’ teaching on spiritual disciplines such as prayer and service, on the church and how he saw the gospel-directed life being lived in his absence. Tracy Lauersen uses Jesus’ sermons from Matthew to describe what becoming and making disciples is really about.
