Sunday Reflection: Grow as You Go
To get the most out of this devotion, set aside time to read the scriptures referenced throughout.
How-to guides are all the rage, and that’s no surprise—western culture places high value on the idea of mastering life. But unlike changing a flat tire or roasting your first turkey, authentic biblical discipleship isn’t about technique or skill. And though there are common tools all believers share—spiritual disciplines handed down through the ages—the pursuit of becoming like Jesus isn’t a one-size-fits-all, predictable process.
Our lives take different turns with unique challenges along the way, and God reaches each of us in a manner that speaks to our experiences. Yet there’s one element we all share: the need for other Christians. (See Hebrews 10:24-25.) We can hear thousands of sermons, attend years’ worth of Bible studies and prayer meetings, and spend countless minutes in quiet time. But it’s life together in the body of Christ that gives discipleship its power.
Think about it
• How important to you is doing “life together” with other believers? What steps are you taking to make that part of your daily or weekly schedule?
Bible in One Year: Joshua 23-24
Reflect: We mature as believers when we aim to strike a balance between time alone with God and doing life together in the body of Christ.
