6 Foundational Habits & Practices of Jesus (Repeat Class)
“Whoever says he abides in him ought to walk in the same way in which he walked.” (1 John 2:6 ESV). If we are to obey this command in 1 John, we need to examine the earthly life of Jesus and discover what exactly were His priorities, how did He “walk”.  In this breakout we will identify 6 Foundational Habits and Practices that are seen in Jesus’ life. We will discuss how they can be applied to our lives to help us make and multiply disciples like Jesus.
