Christian Education is a key to success in the life of a believer/follower of Christ. Our call at Living Waters is to connect to learn about Christ and Christian living. We desire to follow what Acts 2:42 says, “And they devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and the prayers“. We also understand what John 8:31-32 says, “So Jesus said to the Jews who had believed in him, “If you abide in my word, you are truly my disciples, and you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”
While every disciple is a believer, not every believer is necessarily a disciple. Many may think that the term disciple refers only to the early followers of Christ. We know that they were a praying, worshipping, loving, giving, and evangelizing group of men and women who refused to keep the truth of the gospel to themselves. Yet, God still desires disciples todayï¿½ordinary people like you and me whom God can use to do extraordinary things. The Christian experience of the believers in the first-century church may seem radical to many in the church today, but to those early believers, it was normal Christianity. And these men and womenï¿½empowered and motivated by the Holy Spiritï¿½turned their world upside down for the sake of Christ. In short, they were true disciples of Jesus Christ.
To gain a better understanding of who God is and what His desire is for us, we need to engage in discipleship. A disciple is defined as a learner, a pupil, one who comes to be taught. The relationship between the disciple and his teacher is not merely that of a student listening to a lecturer, or a passively interested listener. A disciple listens with attention and intention. He drinks in every word of his teacher, marking every inflection of voice with an intense desire to apply what has been learned.
