Growing Disciples
2023

Growing Disciples is a year long course that promises to grow us as disciples of Jesus Christ. Rather than merely 'knowing about' God, we will be helped to know him personally and relationally. This happens as we build a daily habit of 'slowing down' to intentionally focus ourselves on God, reading the bible and praying.

Exodus 19-20: Commandments 8-10

The last 3 of the 10 commandments seem uncontroversial. Their prohibitions protect basic human rights or maintain good moral order. They are like fences that protect our neighbour from our sin. But Jesus would have us proactively love our neighbour, which has far greater implications for us.

Exodus 19-20: Commandments 6-7

Jesus upholds all the laws and commandments given to Moses— not just the 10 Commandments. He says they cannot change in the least… until all things are accomplished. And then he goes ahead and fulfils them completely on our behalf, freeing us from the condemnation we deserved under the Law of Moses. However, because the enduring value of these laws, Jesus continues to expound them in his Sermon on the Mount. @Growing-Disciples ​

Exodus 19-20: Commandment 5

The fifth commandment stresses the importance of the child-parent relationship as a matter of great importance; literally of great ‘weight’. Today we consider how to 'honour' our parents through the varying seasons of life.
