In other words, obedience to Jesus flows out of relationship with Jesus. The starting point for embodying the Jesus way of life is to practice moment-by-moment openness to the presence of Jesus in our daily lives. From there, we learn how to put Jesus’ commands into practice through active experimentation in the context of supportive Christian community.
EMBODY the Jesus Way of Life
I am actively learning how to put Jesus’ teachings
into practice as I walk with Him
Therefore go and make disciples... teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you.
And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.
(Jesus, Matthew 28:19-20)
