The Life of Jesus: Lessons on Discipleship in the Book of Matthew
Through the book of Matthew, we will study the life of Jesus and the lessons he taught on discipleship. As disciples when we have a close, personal relationship with God, we can help others know and follow Christ as well.
Discipleship should be every believer’s goal, and Jesus is our perfect model for living an earthly life led by our heavenly Father.
The gospel according to Matthew echoes the same invitation to us today that Matthew heard directly from Jesus two thousand years ago. Discipleship is answering the call to “Follow me” just as Matthew answered Jesus affirmatively and wholeheartedly with his entire life.
This study is written to help each of us learn through the pages of Matthew’s gospel how to be a devoted disciple of Jesus Christ and to further the Kingdom of heaven until Jesus returns.
This 24-week study will remind you of the transforming power of Christ in the life of a believer. The remarkable truth of Scripture is that when our hearts are surrendered to his will, God is able to use anyone to fulfill his kingdom purpose.
We are living in a culture where it is critical as believers to find and use trusted resources that will strengthen and inspire us to live our earthly lives with God’s eternal priorities. And that is what you will find with all the Foundations’ Bible studies!
So please request your Bible study e-book below, and accept it with our thanks for your donation of $10 or more. After you request your digital study workbook, we will share details about how you can sign up for the study.
