What is the Way of Jesus?
The Way of Jesus is a pathway to follow as you journey with Jesus. There are markers. The Seven Sayings are those markers. Over time those who follow The Way of Jesus pathway are experiencing joy and fulfillment in their journey with Jesus.
The Way of Jesus is a platform (a matrix) that provides guidance for the life of a follower of Jesus. A follower of Jesus is a disciple (a student, an apprentice) of Jesus. The Way of Jesus platform also provides the guidance you need to disciple someone else.
This is about being a joyful, difference-making follower of Jesus in the World.
The Way of Jesus is not the only approach but there are some very carefully considered elements that are proving very helpful to those who take the time and make the investment to embrace the Way of Jesus pathway.
The Way of Jesus: Seven Markers
Here is a simple language to describe what following Jesus looks like.
These seven markers characterize a follower of Jesus whether they are just starting out or have been on that journey for a lifetime. None of them stand alone; each are interdependent on the others as the strands of a rope combine to form one strong cord.
|HIS LIFE||I have begun following Jesus, and am depending on the Spirit of Jesus in my journey.|
|HIS MISSION||I am being sent by Jesus to bless others and invite them to follow Him.|
|HIS CHARACTER||I am becoming like Jesus in my attitudes, behaviours, and character.|
|HIS LOVE||I am learning to love God and love others.|
|HIS TEACHINGS||I am learning the teachings of Jesus.|
|HIS DISCIPLERS||I am helping someone and someone is helping me to be a reproducing follower of Jesus.|
|HIS COMMUNITY||I am participating in a community of followers of Jesus on mission to the world.|
