Country Bumpkin

This week's SALT callenge is set by Hazel the topic being 'Discipleship' here is the blurb 'Jesus’ disciples were called by Him and became His followers. Jesus final command to them ‘Go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.’ (Matthew 28:19-20)When we become Christians we are not only saved by His grace, but also become Christ’s followers, to learn of Him to seek to live a life that reflects obedience. In John 15, Jesus said that His disciples should bear much fruit and show love one for the other. This may seem a tough call, but in Galatians 5 Paul talks of the fruit of the Spirit, so it is in His power that we can bear fruit and become more like our Saviour who we follow. Christian discipleship involves following Christ and learning from Him – a lifetime’s journey. If you look to the right, you will see that as part of the SALT team each of us wishes to know Jesus more clearly, love Him more dearly and follow Him more nearly, each and every day.'

I had a good ferwe calendars to use up, and that glittery heart had been sitting around for some time so thought I would pu it to good use, it became the inspiration for the project.
