We Are All About Jesus.
He is, without a doubt, the most famous person in all of human history. More songs have been written about him, artwork created of him, and books written about him than anyone who’s ever lived. Even our calendar is based off his life, dividing time before and after him. Naturally, someone this important will have fans and foes. And a lot of people have an idea of who Jesus is. They may get this idea from TV or movies, maybe from past church experience and Sunday School felt boards, from history books, or maybe from just hearsay.
We Preach The Gospel.
“For what I received I passed on to you as of first importance: that Christ died for our sins, that He was buried, that He was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures.” —1 Corinthians 15:3
Beginning a series on spiritual practices, or disciplines, we focus first on the discipline of silence and solitude. Learning from the model of Jesus, we see that the practice of silence and solitude provides space, limits distractions, adjusts our priorities, and prepares us for the work God has for each of us. While difficult to implement, especially in this busy day and age, we examined practical steps to weave this practice into our daily lives, providing space to commune with our loving Father.
