To be like Jesus takes time, intentionality, and effort. If you want to BE the Church, then you must begin a practice to be like Jesus. Your role is disciple and the process is called spiritual formation.
Take time, be intentional and make effort to:
– be alone with Jesus to watch, listen and learn
– be in community to love and to be loved
– be a servant to others without any reward
The ancient spiritual disciplines are tools that work our formation in Christ. Practicing them makes us accessible to the Master Craftsman. Jesus did all these things to become like his Father. His apostles handed down these practices to build up the Church. What are you waiting for?
