Andrew Bernhardt is a follower of Jesus Christ who still struggles with the flesh but is learning how to walk in the Spirit. He is the author of the book Seeing Jesus—A Discipleʹs Perspective.
In his letter to the believers at Rome, Paul described his own battles with sin—battles he repeatedly lost in spite of his best efforts. He had to learn victory cannot come through will-power. If we're honest with ourselves, we will admit the same thing. But then God showed Paul the only way to overcome sin: through the power of the Holy Spirit.
Discover what the Bible says about the root cause of our practical sin problem and the role the Holy Spirit has in dealing with it. Then, join Paul when he exclaims, "I thank God through Jesus Christ, our Lord!"

As a follower of Jesus, are you satisfied with just seeing him in the pages of scripture, or are you so captivated that you want others to see him also? Maybe it’s been a while since you’ve had a good look at your Master. If so, the first part of this book, A Gospel Travelogue, will help you see Jesus with fresh eyes, and encourage you to keep looking on your own.
Coming to Jesus is easy. People have been doing so ever since he walked the earth. But the call to follow Jesus is much more difficult. The second part, What It Means To Follow Jesus, explains what Jesus meant when he said, “If anyone desires to come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me.”
As you follow Jesus, you realize he wants us to see with his eyes. Look, Pray, Go is about the need to see people the way Jesus sees them. Only in this way will we have his love and compassion when serving others.
The last part, Discipleship - Then and Now, compares the way we train disciples today with the way Jesus and his apostles trained disciples. There is much we can learn from the New Testament model.
