Portrait of a Disciple

Portrait of a Disciple

Resources for reflection, discussion and study.
What does it mean to be a good person and to live a truly good life? Jesus told people once, “I have come that you may have life and have it abundantly.” One of Jesus’ early followers said that God was inviting everyone to turn and receive life. A little later another urged that we “take hold of the life that is truly life.” Portrait of a Disciple explores this “true life” and how we might live like Jesus with soft hearts, engaged minds, open hands, and whole spirits. This isn’t some “to do” list that God gives us. It’s not a religious life that we’re supposed to add to our already over-full lives. Instead, it’s a better, more hopeful, more gracious way to live together the lives we already have. Welcome to the joyful journey of life with Jesus.
