Following of Christ

Author: Tauler, John (c. 1300-1361)

Following of Christ instructs Christians to follow the selfless life of poverty demonstrated by Jesus Christ. Tauler describes poverty as the adherence to God's authority over any earthly desire. God has created us as free individuals with the power and capacity to choose a life of service to Him. Tauler teaches Christians how to set aside material interests and instead seek God inwardly. When we surrender ourselves freely to God, He transforms us internally, giving us the grace to perform godly works. Once we have freed ourselves from earthly burdens, we are able to receive divine truth. Following of Christ is both spiritually and intellectually fulfilling. All audience will be enriched by the practical wisdom in Tauler's words.
