Early Christians  were  called  followers   of  “the  Way”.   But  what  is  it?   And  what  is  a  Christian  life?     Here  are  seven  memorable  keys  for   living  the  new  life  of  a  Christian.         Three  beliefs  that  form  the  way  you  see   life.   Four  practices  that  shape  the  way  you  live  it.     One:     The  one  central  message  of  Jesus.    Seek   after  God’s  Kingdom  –  His  ways,  His   beauty,  His  life  –  before  anything  else.     Two:       The  two  greatest  commands:  Love  God,   Love  others.     Three:     The  three  ways  we  know  God:  as  Father,  as  Son,  as   Spirit.    

Four:   Four  ways  to  be  formed:  Prayer,  Scripture,   Community,  Worship.     Five:       Displaying  God’s  life  in  what  is  seen,  heard,   touched,  felt  and  tasted.    Whole  life  following.     Six:     Walking  the  Way  in  the  six  days  of  Monday  to   Saturday.     Seven:       The  seventh  day  of  rest.    Living  a  life  of  balance   and  rhythm.     These  will  be  the  basis  of  our  teaching  in  2013,   and  a  resource  for  the  future.     We  will  unpack  some  of  these   themes  in  more  detail   throughout  the  year.      


You can  use  these  in  various  ways:     Personally,  as  a  way  of  praying  about  your   walk  with  God.     In  groups,  perhaps  by  focusing  on  one  area   at  the  beginning  of  a  meeting,  helping  and   praying  for  each  other  about  it.     With  someone  else,  by  using  these  seven   keys  to  support  and  challenge  each  other.     As  a  journey  for  helping  a  new  Christian(s),   using  the  growing  resources  on  our  website   as  a  basis  for  discipling  and  mentoring.     With  thanks  to  Richard  Wilson  for  this  outline.
