Description of “Disciple”

A “disciple” is a person who through faith in Jesus Christ believes the gospel and seeks to center their life on the teachings of Jesus. A disciple is obedient to the scriptures, has a vibrant prayer life, attends worship regularly, practices personal evangelism, loves their neighbor as themselves and lives a generous life. A disciple cares about the needs of all people in the world and seeks to be the hands and feet of Christ as part of God’s transforming plan for the world. A Disciple is a person growing in grace and in the knowledge of God. A disciple is quick to forgive; quick to repent, and practices gospel centered hospitality and humility.

Conversational Bible Study of The Book of Ruth ~Guided by Jim Sommerville ~ Sundays at 9:30AM in Room W10  **Starting June 17**

The book of Ruth is the most beautiful love story in the Bible, but unlike all other love stories, it is the story of astonishing love of a daughter-in-law for her mother-in-law. It is also the story of how a young widow from a nation, despised and excluded by the Israelites, plays a major role in Israel’s history by becoming the great-grandmother of King David—and finally an ancestor of Jesus.

Each of the main characters in the story—Ruth, Naomi, and Boaz—exemplify the great Old Testament virtue of Hesed—which includes loyalty, kindness, love, and mercy. It is a story that begins with disaster and ends with joy.

In our study of the four chapters of this little book we will consider its lessons for us.

This class is designed for someone who is anywhere between Engaging, Deepening, or Centered on the Discipleship pathway.
