1. The Call
Based on the stories of Jesus first encounters with his disciples this study asks us to reflect on how we first met with Him
Meeting with Jesus brings change. This study looks at Jesus meeting with tax collectors, and how Jesus was able to transform their lives
3. The Heart
Perhaps the most difficult of questions when Jesus asks “Do you love me more than these”. What is Jesus referring to, is it people or processions. Both can be a challenge. Jesus still asks the question.
4. Death and Resurrection - the cost
The study entwines the thought of the cost of discipleship with the power of the symbol of baptism.
5. Rooted in God's Word
How well do we know what God has said to us in his word. Can we identify with the writer of Psalm 119, or do we know where to turn to when asked why we believe what the Bible says?
6. Growing Prayer
Looks at how Jesus taught us to pray, and helps us develop tools so that we can grow prayer in our own lives.
