Becoming like Jesus is no different. It requires us not just to meet him occasionally but also steadily and surely to remain in him.
How does this look close up?
In a world where Christlikeness is counter-cultural, the author offers sure-footed Bible teaching, questions, illustrations, suggestions and prayers to point us in the right direction. And, as well as this useful material, we have the Holy Spirit's help to live transformed lives today.
A practical, thought-provoking and accessible resource to help us live 'transformed' lives.
I’m happy to commend this study guide which will be of benefit to both individuals and small groups. It is packed with challenging biblical insights.
Seeing Jesus afresh through the lenses of this guide will stir your heart, open your mind, engage your imagination, and grow your desire to be like Christ in the whole of life. Far from ‘other worldly’, this study guide maps out some vital pathways for followers of Jesus through the gritty reality of everyday contexts and relationships. Yes, the terrain is challenging. But this is a grace-filled, Christ-dependent journey to become more like Jesus. Come join!
Becoming like Jesus is central to God’s agenda for every disciple so don’t read and engage with these studies unless you are ready and willing to change! Practical, thoughtful and designed for group learning, they will challenge you to reflect and act on what imitating Jesus looks like in your life and context
This set of study notes from Derek Tidball would make a very useful course for church discipleship groups or home study groups. In challenging readers to grow more fully into the image of Christ, the studies do not default on practical application or suggestions for deeper reflection, and also indicate the rich Old Testament background to Jesus' ministry where appropriate. The explanatory notes at the back will be a great help to group discussion.
Derek has once again opened the scriptures to help us see Jesus afresh. The format moves from study, through prayer, to action, so that the individual or group is open to the character of Jesus being formed in them. I been reading it on my way to a retreat and know it will prove useful.'
