Lesson 4: Discipleship as We Declare the Gospel
God calls Christians to live a life that displays the change Jesus made in us. But in this final lesson, Ben talks about everyday ways that followers of Jesus can “give a defense” for the hope we have. Every time we have the chance to share the gospel, we experience a moment of personal discipleship: “Do I really believe this?” “Is this important to me?” “Am I taking a Christlike posture as I share?” Each posture and belief reflects a heart-level reality of our discipleship, and impacts the discipleship of the people to whom God sent us.
