The Cost of Discipleship.
What can the call to discipleship, the adherence to the word of Jesus, meaning to today’s lay person, aristocrat, politician, family man, and everyday joe. What does it mean to submit to Christ’s authority even in the most difficult of circumstances? Is there joy to be found in a life submitted to Christ? What does it mean to be a disciple? What is the cost of discipleship? Is discipleship for everyone? How are we to develop as disciples, and help other to develop in their discipleship.
Over the course of 7 weeks Men’s Bible Study will be reading ‘The Cost of Discipleship’ By Dietrich Bonhoeffer. Over the weeks we will get a better understanding of the Costly grace. What is the cost to us, and how paid the ultimate price. Bonhoeffer draws on the Sermon on the Mount. The Cost of Discipleship is a compelling statement.
