To make the world a better place. We need to eat and drink with more people… just like Jesus.
It is possible to really see concrete proof that God sees you, knows you, cares for you, and is intimately involved in your life. This kind of life… this kind of faith and trust comes from practicing the Art of Following Jesus… And Jesus said there was one practice that grows our faith like nothing else.
We all have the ability to be the change we wish to see in the world. But this type of life doesn’t just happen by accident. It’s the result of conscious and committed choices about how we live… but we don’t have to do it alone. The secret to becoming the change we wish to see is discovered when we practice the art of following Jesus.
For many people the idea of knowing God seems impossible. If he or it even exists, it’s “out there,” distant, intangible, too large and removed for us to really know what he/it is on any concrete level… At most God is something we can only catch glimpses of.
But Jesus gave us a different picture. A picture of a heavenly Father who knows us and who we can know personally and intimately.
