On Saturday 23rd February, the Discipling God’s People network hosted a meet-up with Mark Stirling at Hope Church Merthyr, looking at the subject of Discipleship and Holiness.
Disciples of Jesus should grow in holiness. But what we understand holiness to be and how it looks will shape how we think of discipleship. How do we live as disciples of Jesus without falling into legalism on the one hand or license on the other? What does it look like to live as people united to Christ and being restored in His image?
In the first session, Mark helped us to think biblically about this crucial issue. The second session dealt with case studies, giving an opportunity to work through how these vital truths connect to our real life situations. Finally, there was an opportunity for Q&A on the issues raised during the day, and to talk practically about disciplemaking.
This seminar was of particular interest to those with a heart to make disciples of Jesus in a world with constantly changing values and challenges.
