Gospel Centered Discipleship

Gospel Centered Discipleship (Crossway, 2012)

At Harbor Church we have been walking through chapter 15 of the Gospel of John the past few weeks and looking at what it means to have an abiding relationship with Jesus Christ. Last week, I read through Jonathan Dodson’s book on discipleship and thought there was some great insight into where our abiding relationships can go sideways. The first and last part of the book were so-so but the middle section is a gold mine.

In the middle section Jonathan talks about the ways we distort discipleship by trying to mature on our own away from Christ instead of resting in him and growing in a deeper understanding of his life, death, and resurrection – the heart of the Gospel message.

This book helped me take a look at my own discipleship and allowed me to see some areas that I can get off track in my relationship with Jesus and how to course correct and come back to a relationship of abiding love and grace instead of one where I attempt to prove my love and gratitude toward him.

If you feel stuck in a rut in your maturation and sanctification I would encourage you to check out this short and easy read for yourself.
