Here is a great new resource that I am very excited about from a great guy and someone I am honored to have gotten to know during seminary. The discipleship group that I am leading is going to be using this resource to shape our understanding of how to help each other fight the fight of faith together. Hope that you take the time to check this out. You can download this resource for free (The links are at the bottom of the post).
Jonathan is a missional church planter in Austin. The church community that he leads, Austin City Life, is really trying to redemptively live and proclaim the gospel in some creative and God glorifying ways in Austin and beyond. He is also an astute blogger and you can read his insights on Creation Project and Church Planting Novice.
You can read his post about the new booklet here. Here is what Jonathan has to say about this booklet.
This book was written for the church, for disciples who struggle to follow Jesus well. It’s intended to equip you to fight the fight of faith in the power of the gospel, and to do so as Jesus intended, in community. My hope is that it will strengthen your resolve to fight the good fight of faith well (1 Tim 6:12), and in the strength that God provides (1 Pet 4:11). I hope it helpfully dismantles legalistic and loose patterns of discipleship and frees you to follow Jesus by grace. May it inspire you with the rich gospel motivations God has given us in the Son and the Spirit to follow hard after God!
