Followers of Christ enjoy being redeemed from sin and having a knowledge that they will enter eternal life after their life on this earth is finished. However, how do we live as followers of Christ in this world? How do we conquer our daily sins? How do we experience God’s eternal plan today and each day in our human existence? It is difficult if we don’t clearly know what to believe and haven’t purposely and intentionally engaged in the process of renewing our minds. We must define our core values as followers of Jesus Christ! In this new edition of Discovering Your Core Values the writers have added processing exercises to help the reader develop and establish life-giving core values. Now one can more easily engage in the process of discovering and developing biblical core values. This process enables us to enter into a life of living free and full while being a fruitful disciple and follower of Jesus Christ! Also, in this edition, guidelines are offered for processing within a small group.
