According to Jesus, your life has infinite importance. You aren’t here by mistake. You were made on purpose for a purpose. That purpose is only fully realized and experienced when we practice the art of following Jesus.
Can we actually listen to God? What does it mean to be guided by the Holy Spirit? Is it just a Christian version of following our hearts? How do we know we aren’t just hearing what we want to hear? If we really want to be able to listen to God we need to practice the art of following Jesus.
What does it actually mean to be a Christian… to follow Jesus? Just believe the right stuff, follow the right list of rules and you’re good to go? Honestly, that sounds terrible. There’s another way. It’s time we practice the art of following Jesus
Our relationships are supremely influential in our lives and determine our life outcomes to an enormous degree. The problem is, many times, we participate in relationships that aren’t necessarily healthy for us. The good news is that we can choose to build nourishing relationships with Jesus and others by focusing on and prioritizing them and being mindful of the influence they have on us.
If we constantly fill our bodies with empty calories we won’t be able to live healthy lives. The same is true with the quality of the influences we allow into our lives. But how do we know which influences are healthy and which are empty? It all comes down to asking the right questions.
