The Disciple, the Disciplines and the Triumphant Life
Dallas taught this 11-week series at Rolling Hills Covenant Church in 1981 for people who really want to be like Jesus and have made an intentional decision to be a disciple of Christ.
The Disciple: To be a disciple is to be a learner. In the days when the New Testament was written, it was understood that a person discipled themselves to another individual because they wanted to be like that other individual.
The Disciplines: Chosen or purposeful activities wherein we learn to live by the power of God and in the character of God by the grace of God.
The Triumphant Life: A life of holiness and spiritual power that manifests itself in likeness to Christ.
Dallas mentions Richard Foster’s book Celebration of Discipline, throughout the series. Richard’s book had just been published in 1978, and Dallas’s The Spirit of the Disciplines was later released in 1988.
