The Way of Jesus: Seven Markers

Here is a simple language to describe what following Jesus looks like.

These seven markers characterize a follower of Jesus whether they are just starting out or have been on that journey for a lifetime. None of them stand alone; each are interdependent on the others as the strands of a rope combine to form one strong cord. 

His Life HIS LIFE I have begun following Jesus, and am depending on the Spirit of Jesus in my journey.
His Mission HIS MISSION I am being sent by Jesus to bless others and invite them to follow Him.
HIS CHARACTER I am becoming like Jesus in my attitudes, behaviours, and character.
HIS LOVE I am learning to love God and love others.
HIS TEACHINGS I am learning the teachings of Jesus.
HIS DISCIPLERS I am helping someone and someone is helping me to be a reproducing follower of Jesus.
HIS COMMUNITY I am participating in a community of followers of Jesus on mission to the world.
