The challenge now facing the Church is to share the gospel of Jesus Christ beyond the confines of a congregation. This is not a challenge that will cost money or require much effort. However, it is a shift that challenges the baptized to live their daily lives as disciples and followers of Christ Jesus. Through a discipleship model Christians are being invited to daily participate in the Church’s first model of ministry: living each day with Christ. Today, Christians are being challenged to a renewed understanding of what it means to be a follower of Jesus. The Seven Habits of Jesus teach us how to be disciples both in Christian community and in our daily lives.
