...Becoming Like Jesus
Congratulations to all of you who activated your passport! You’ve made it through the first leg of Knowing Jesus: a deeper walk, a richer life. We pray you are growing closer to the Lord, gaining a deeper understanding of your faith and seeing real life change.
As you continue the journey, leg two focuses on your personal transformation. We know that following Jesus is not only hard, but can be hard to figure out where to begin. Each day, your faith is tested and you have to decide to either surrender and trust God, or give in to your feelings.
Most of us want stronger character, and the ability to love more deeply. We all want to be more kind and patient. We need more self-control, and peace in our lives. We can get there if we do the work and keep moving forward.
Your transformation entails cultivating spiritual disciplines like how to meet with God and hear His voice, and practicing stillness. Your transformation can mean the difference between a failed or happy marriage, between having peace and joy or a restless heart.
Have you taken the “You Betta Ask Somebody Challenge” yet? This challenge is designed to help you determine which Fruit of the Spirit to focus on and develop this year. Let's finish our personal race strong; don’t slow down, continue the journey and watch your life change!
