Personal discipleship in Jesus is to pray every day, no matter what, and pray through the day. And to read the Bible everyday, no matter what. At least the McCheyne method (or equivalent). Sermon prep DOES NOT count.
No excuses. Sit with God. Soak in His goodness and beauty. Daily.
Open my Bible before I open my mouth each day.
No. Matter. What.
Here’s the draft:
Am I suggesting too much?
Think so? Maybe a long look at the cross and contemplation of that price will help.
It’s not about earning or measuring up, it’s about being with the God who loved me enough to die to make me fit to hang out with.
Thank. You. Jesus.
