Christian Workplace Groups - Following in Jesus' Footsteps
The ministry of Jesus changed the World in which we live – forever! However, Jesus did not do this on His own. He enlisted the help of a group of followers who we know as His disciples. It was after they received the Holy Spirit at Pentecost that the Good News exploded across the world. This was made possible through the power of the Holy Spirit, but also because of the meticulous care with which Jesus had prepared His disciples to take the Good News out into the World.
In many ways, Christian Workplace Groups (CWGs) are simply following in Jesus footsteps. Today, empowered by the Spirit, we are called to take the Good News into the workplace and we do this through the vehicle of our CWGs.
In a series of articles TWUK's Dr Adrian Miles takes a look at how our CWGs can learn from the way in which Jesus led His early group of followers– His disciples.
