This book offers you hope if you, like most Christians, are sometimes erratic, inconsistent, and faithless. This thirty-day guide will teach you how to follow Jesus as a disciple in spite of those traits.
Asking "What would Jesus do?" is a place to start a spiritual adventurebut there's more. There's The Next Level. Discipleship. Yeah, like the disciples, right? The Big Twelve. Super-religious guys who hung out with Jesus, carried his bags, listened to his stories (that usually went over their heads), did their best to be bodyguards for Jesus (well, except at the end, when they let that narc Judas slip in one last time), and despite being dense most of the time were the best friends Jesus had. Okay, for being Christ's closest friends, the disciples were clueless, selfish, erratic, inconsistent, and faithless at least half the time. And Jesus loved them and used them all the more for it. So there's hope for you if, like most Christians, you're erratic, inconsistent, and sometimes faithless. There's hope for you if you want to follow Christ closer than you actually do. Here's a 30-day adventure through 30 traits of disciples as they're lived out in the New Testament (and in teenagers like yourself). They're not all pretty. But they're all the marks of a disciple. Open up this journal and take a look at some of them . . . see yourself yet? After 30 days of following Jesus to The Next Level, you just might see yourself as a disciple.
