Habits of Grace: Spiritual Disciplines for the Christian Life
Hear his voice. Have his ear. Belong to his body. There are the three main principles that shape and
strengthen the Christian life. When these everyday spiritual habits are practiced, they become
channels of grace to our souls that increase Christian love, living, and most of all, joy. This is not a call to
legalism or pointless self-denial. It’s a call to “pleasures forevermore” – both individually and as a church
(Psalm 16:11). Let’s learn to practice them together so we might grow in likeness to Christ (13 weeks).
What is the gospel? Who is it for? These may seem like simple questions but there’s much more to them.
It’s the good news about Jesus Christ that someone must believe to be saved. But once a Christian, we never
get over the gospel. Paul was eager to preach the gospel to Roman Christians for their mutual benefit
because he believed “it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who keeps on believing” (Rom. 1:11-16).
The goal of this Core Class is to gain a deeper understanding of the good news that saves us and build a firm foundation for the Christian life. We will dive into parts of Romans and other New Testament passages. Let’s go
deeper in our understanding of the gospel together, especially if you are newer to Meadow Creek (13 weeks).
