We are kicking-off 2017 with To and From, an exploration of what biblical discipleship looks like in our context.
This week, Breehan Pfeiffer, CCF Blog editor and interim Community Group leader, shares thoughts and reflections on this week's message.
Pastor Rich shared on what being a disciple and discipleship relationships should look like and how it can transform our lives. He gave us an overview of how Jesus himself engaged in these relationships daily. I loved his take on the Luke 5:1-11.
Discipleship relationships are often difficult, messy, and challenging but I know that God is desperately desiring these types of relationships among His children. It is through deep and intense relationship that we grow closer towards each other and ultimately Him. These types of relationships also cultivate a deeper reliance on Him. Our journey together through discipleship is not a single, frozen-in-time photograph but an ever-evolving, dynamic video with lots of stages, changes, triumphs, and valleys.
After hearing this sermon, I gained a renewed passion, excitement, and awareness of the necessity of community. I am excited and passionate about seeing all of us grow together through community groups. Discipleship relationships happen through meeting together, doing life together and digging in to each other weekly.
