Welcome to this series of devotional posts based on ‘Roots & Wings’ an integrative Bible study for discipleship, written by Pastor Edmund Chan, our guest speaker at RISE, QB Convention 2015. Our thoughts will be based around five areas: our human weakness, the resulting problem, the radical re-orientation, the critical need, and the empowered life of Roots & Wings.
TOPIC: Who’s Really in Charge? (Biblical Allegiances)
The Resulting Problem: We practice a “cheap grace” discipleship (1 Cor 10:1-11)
What does it mean to be a disciple of Jesus? Certainly a disciple of Jesus is one who follows His example. Discipleship is a call to all the Christians. The disciple of Jesus recognises that he or she does not belong to this world anymore and therefore conformity to this world and its practices does not bring any good to us. The power of the grace that saved us is also sufficient for our lives to be renewed and separated for God’s cause.
