Learning to walk with Jesus is a lifelong pursuit. After committing my life to Christ, I knew I needed to grow in my spiritual walk. I remember years ago thinking “now how do I live?” I knew I was saved by grace through faith. But the day to day living was a challenge for me.
How thankful I am that the Bible teaches us how to live in Christ. In John 17, Jesus was preparing His disciples for the time when He would soon depart from them.
“My prayer is not that you take them out of the world but that you protect them from the evil one. They are not of the world even as I am not of it.” John 17:15-16 NIV
This life can be very challenging. Sometimes I wonder why God doesn't just take His own home now. But that wasn't His plan. As a Christian, I have to remember that although I live in this world, this isn't my real home. But while I’m here I am to reflect Jesus to others.
