Sentinels For Christ promoting tools for discipleship growth

DISCIPLESHIP IS LIFE

Disciples men and women understand who they are in Jesus Christ.  This truth is so profoundly imbedded in their lifves it transforms them.  it impacts the lives of those around them by a love remarkably observed as supernatural and originating from a relationship between the individual and Jesus himself.

Many of us relate to the story of the Prodigal Son (Luke 15).  We seem to never move beyond the past and experience a life that feels "free." Nor does our life seem to have any power to impact the world around us.  Past mistakes and choices without God are costly but they are not meant to hold us in a spiritual prison.  The Word tells us, after we accept Jesus "He seats us in the heavenly realms" (Ephesian 2:6).  That means the freedom process is supposed begin  immediately What holds us back is our unwillingness to accept it, or simply not understanding it, or our refusal to let go of the things that bind us which can be anything from behaviors, to attitudes and perceptions we won’t let God renew with the power of His Hoy Spirit.  

Most Christians never live in freedom.  And it’s because of this they spend their lives feeling out of synch with their faith and the relationship their intended to have with Jesus.  There is a process the Bible teaches that all of us have to experience in building our freedom and with few exceptions, most of us need this process to grow healthy in our faith.  SFC focuses on cultivating this process in people’s lives.

THE BELIEVER'S IDENTITY IS IN CHRIST  

Sadly, many Christians live with no power and even less joy. This results from a misconception about who they are in Christ.  Most of us, just like the rest of the world, make the mistake of seeking our identity through the eyes of others. This always produces disappointment.  While we know there's more to being in Christ, we wonder what's wrong. The only permanent intimacy that can satisfy human hearts is the person of the Holy Spirit through Jesus Christ.  When we get this right, human relationships, all of them begin to fall in place. Our Christian identity still exists in a broken world where the understanding of the spiritual realm has largely been ignored. We underestimate how stubborn attitudes and behaviors or failure to grow isn’t because we haven’t tried hard enough. Its because there is a real battle in the spiritual realm competing for our devotion and attention and just because we found Christ, it doesn’t go away in fact it may intensify. Taking on this type of war is the practice of Christ centered communities and intercessory prayer.
