Week Four, Sunday, February 1st
Sermon Title: Covenant as Christian Discipleship
Scripture Reading: Romans 12:1-13; Hebrews 10:15-25; Luke 14:25-33
Focus: We live in a self-absorbed culture that prefers a moral therapeutic deism and a passive receiver model of the church over an active allegiance to the disciple-making commands of Jesus. Covenant membership challenges the current spirit of the age—rugged individualism—by offering a Christ-centered, missional church family as a counter-cultural response. We are called to follow Jesus in the reversal of Babel. What does this mean from an Anabaptist perspective? What does this look like for you and our church?
Tags/Key Concepts: Body of Christ, sharing the journey, being intentionally present and active, a living covenant with the church, Anabaptist view of discipleship, deep community, developing your spiritual gifts, serving, making disciples, real communion, covenant membership, etc.
