Thinking about discipleship in terms of steps, stages, phases, or levels
makes many Christians uncomfortable. After all, how many of us want
to take a critical look at ourselves and our journey of spiritual
development, only to find we?re not at the level we think we should
be?or worse yet, we?ve regressed! Maybe we can?t even identify the
stage we?re in.
Author and pastor John Burns has always had an aversion to
descriptions of discipleship which involve gradations of achievement.
He?s concerned about the many best-selling books on the subject that
indicate that there are steps for disciples to follow which take us in a
straight line from baptism to sainthood with ascending progress up the
rungs of discipleship.
For Burns, comfort was found in the Bible where,
when looking at the examples of Jesus? followers, he
discovered that he couldn?t find uninterrupted linear
progress in their lives either. The surprise came
when he discovered the disciple he was most drawn
to was Mary, the mother of Jesus.
Addresses the questions:
? How does spiritual maturity look when we
take a dynamic, artistic approach versus a
linear, measured approach?
? How can Mary?s life provide illumination
for our own growth in discipleship?
? What does it mean for us to answer God?s
call rather than stick to our own agenda?
? Spiritual meditations built on ten passages from the Gospels which focus on the spiritual
development of Mary
? A look at pondering, suffering, and refocusing in our journey of spiritual development
? An understanding of the role grace plays in our becoming disciples of Christ
? Questions for reflection and small group study
John Burns offers spiritual meditations built on ten passages from the Gospels which focus on the spiritual development of Mary; a look at pondering, suffering, and refocusing in our journey of spiritual development; an understanding of the role grace plays in our becoming disciples of Christ and questions for reflection and small group study.
