21 Ways to Revive Your Relationship With Christ
If we follow Jesus, we will be a person of prayer just as He was. For prayer to become a priority, we must make it a daily habit to have a quiet time alone with God.
Too often many of us begin the morning with thoughts of everything we need to accomplish that day. As the sovereign Lord and Master not only of the universe but of our individual lives, God requires our submission and obedience to His will. Just as we trusted Christ for salvation, so we must continue to live by faith as we follow Him.
Building on a Solid Foundation
Following requires obedience, and when this is the desire of our hearts, we recognize how foolish it is to go our own way. If we stubbornly refuse to obey God, He will send enough heartache and trouble into our lives to correct us. It is always good to obey Him because He is the source of every good thing. The love we are to have for Christ involves our entire being.
Wholehearted love for Christ affects what we think and watch, what we do, and where we go. Each of us can surely say something to spark the interest of someone we know who is not following Jesus. All of us have the capacity to serve the Lord in some fashion by serving others. If we are following Jesus, we can expect to experience some form of suffering. But this should not stop us from following Jesus and sharing the gospel.
Although we may be tempted to pick and choose which of these qualities we want to pursue, all these practices are essential elements of our walk with Jesus and should become an important part of our lives as we follow Him. Are you a follower of Christ? If you find any of these characteristics difficult to accept and practice, go to God in prayer and ask Him to work them into your life so you can follow Jesus more fully.
