Course 1 1 The Well 1024x576

2. The Well: Four Elements of Heart-Focused Discipleship

Some Christians are like clogged wells. They have the Spirit inside of them, but something is stuck.

Course 1.3 Grace Foundation Covenant 1024x576

3. The Grace Foundation: Law vs. Grace

Christians have historically struggled to trust grace to produce character. The temptation is always to add law to grace. People fear that without a line in the sand, people will turn to sin. Grace, however, provides a magnet that attracts us to Christ. As we live for Him and in relationship with Him, the line in the sand becomes irrelevant.

4. The Grace Foundation: New Covenant

God made grace the foundation of our relationship with Him and the New Covenant sets out the legal implications of grace for our identity in Christ and what that means for how we should live.

Course 1.5 The Spirit Walking 1024x576

5. The Spirit: Walking in the Flesh vs. Walking in the Spirit

Few things are more miserable than trying to live the Christian life by walking in the flesh. The flesh has desires. The mind set on the flesh has strategies to meet those desires. The fruit of these desires and strategies are flesh patterns that keep us stuck. Part of breaking free is learning a new pattern for life: Seeking God, Listening to God, Obeying God, and Watching what happens.
