“My Walk With Jesus? It’s Personal”
Pastor Duane Cross | 01.16.2011
I) WHAT AM I GOING TO DO TO TAKE ONE STEP CLOSER TO JESUS?
1) Make God’s word a regular part of your life.
“Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path." (Psalm 119:105)
“When he was at the table with them, he took bread, gave thanks, broke it and began to give it to them. Then their eyes were opened and they recognized him. They asked each other, ‘Were not our hearts burning within us while he talked with us on the road and opened the Scriptures to us?’” (Luke 24:30-32)
2) Make prayer an intimate part of your day.
“They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer. Everyone was filled with awe at the many wonders and signs performed by the apostles. All the believers were together and had everything in common. They sold property and possessions to give to anyone who had need. Every day they continued to meet together in the temple courts. They broke bread in their homes and ate together with glad and sincere hearts, praising God and enjoying the favor of all the people. And the Lord added to their number daily those who were being saved.” Acts 2:42-47(NIV)
3) Make service a normal part of your life.
“He has showed you, O man, what is good. And what does the Lord require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.” (Micah 6:8)
4) Practice the presence of Christ.
II) WHAT AM I GOING TO DO TO HELP SOMEONE ELSE TAKE ONE STEP CLOSER TO JESUS?
“Evangelism is to cooperate with the Holy Spirit and others to bring one person one step closer to Christ.”
ONE: “cooperate with the Holy Spirit”
TWO: “and others”
THREE: “to bring one person”
FOUR: “one step closer to Christ”
