Connecting and maintaining a good relationship with Jesus is an essential aspect of our spiritual lives. Yet this activity is often disregarded when the realities of life capture your full attention and we fail to appreciate the abundance of his love and grace that awaits us.
If you want to reconnect your spiritual life with Jesus but are not sure about how and where to start, these simple biblical guidelines will keep you running towards the God who wants us to prosper in all areas of our lives.
1. Find a comfortable space.
It is so easy to become distracted especially if we try to pray or establish any spiritual connections to Jesus. It is best to find your own personal space where you can have a personal talk with Jesus, away from distractions, and where you can pour out everything that you feel, both your troubles and your thankfulness.
2. Now is the best time.
Anytime is the best time to pray, and if possible, now should be the best time. You can always set aside any unnecessary activities to spend time with God. Nothing feels better than having a talk with the One who created you.
3. Study the New Testament Gospels
Study the Biblical accounts in the New Testament and meditate on them. Studying what Jesus said and did can be strange at first, because it is unfamiliar. Always pray for revelation and for the Holy Spirit to fill you and open your eyes to the truth.
Once you have a revelation about how much God loves you, the desire to learn about God follows. Always take a leap of faith, and read or listen to Biblical passages slowly until it becomes a habit.
Jesus longs to hear from you!
