Walking in step with God
Once you get past the gospels and Acts the rest of the New Testament is made up of letters that were written by real people to real people in real situations. Some times we call these `the epistles'. Most, but not all, of the letters in the New Testament were written by Paul.
Although they were written for different reasons (to encourage, to correct, to rebuke etc) their overall purpose was to help their recipients as they tried to work out what it meant to live as a disciple of Jesus in their context.
Several times the authors used the phrase 'I urge you...' to highlight an attitude or a behaviour that it was really important to develop. Not exactly a commandment but certainly more than a mere suggestion. As we study let's see what God is urging us towards.
