Sit. Walk. Stand.

Week 3

Yesterday, John Reeves reminded us that dwelling on the truths of God allows us not only to become more like Christ in due time, but represents a real, mature relationship with the Savior. His analogy of the crock pot painted a vivid picture of the holy saturation that envelopes the believer who spends quality time with God by intentionally meditating on His Word. The author of Psalm 119 was hungry for a proper understanding of the ways of God (v. 34) and desired deeply to ruminate daily on His Word (v. 148). In his letter to the church at Colossae (and also Laodicea), Paul encouraged believers to let the word of Christ dwell in you richly (Colossians 3:16). Why? Because the Word of God is vital for doctrine, reproof, wisdom, joy, clarity, and comprehensive righteousness (2 Timothy 3, Psalm 19). As we seek to worship Jesus and become more like Him, our aim should be to wholly immerse ourselves in Scripture while faithfully pondering the veracity of Almighty God.

If you would like to begin a conversation about following Jesus or more information on how He might be calling you to go, we would love to hear from you. If you have questions, please feel free to ask them here.

Over the next several weeks, we’ll be working through a few books to help guide our training. If you would like to check them out, you can purchase them below.
