Studies in Christian Discipleship
The world drags us downward. The devil tempts us downward. Our fallen natures exert a downward pull. But God calls us upward through His Son Jesus Christ.
When Jesus lived among us, He offered an alternative to the world — Himself. He said, “Follow Me.” He asks us to forsake the world, surrender everything to Him, and to become His disciples. This upward call is a lifelong climb, an ongoing process that requires commitment, courage, and discipline.
What does it mean to be a disciple of Christ today? The Upward Call points to God’s Word for answers. These Bible studies in Christian discipleship lead us to understand God’s call, to tackle issues every disciple must face, and to shoulder the responsibilities of discipleship.
Each of the twelve lessons in this book begins with a personal inventory designed to help you open your heart to the truth of the lesson. This is followed by Scripture passages, comments on the Scriptures, study questions, and application questions.
Deeply practical, intensely devotional, The Upward Call challenges, instructs, and encourages us to follow the Master as He beckons us ever upward.
