Part of the Contemporary Christian series.
John Stott's best-selling volume, The Contemporary Christian: An Urgent Plea for Double Listening, updated and presented for today's audience.
If Christ is our Lord, then we are his servants, and if he is our teacher, then we are his pupils.
Following Christ is a multi-faceted responsibility. We should remember:
- Every true disciple is a listener.
- We are both rational and emotional.
- We can discern God's call and will.
Love is the first fruit of the Spirit, a core ingredient of discipleship.
