Walk Daily with Jesus

Walk Daily with Jesus

 

First 15: Time, Place, PlanThe First 15 needs a time, a place, and a plan.  Choose a time of the day when you’ll spend 15 minutes with the Lord.  Choose a place in your house you’ll spend that time with the Lord, and get it ready.  Choose a plan for what you’ll read in that place as you spend your time with the Lord.

 

 

First 15: Read, Respond, PrayPray as you begin, asking God to speak to you.  Then open your book or devotional andread slowly, listening for what God has to say to you.  What in the lesson got your attention?  What seemed to speak to you?  What made you uncomfortable and convicted you; or what made you comfortable and brought you peace?  That’s the Holy Spirit talking to you through the Word.  Respond with thanksgiving, with obedience, and with prayer.

 

 

End your time with the Lord’s Prayer, pausing at each petition to make it your own.  Ask God’s Kingdom to come into your life and the life of those you love.  Obey God’s will in the Commandments, and accept God’s will for your life.  Go over your day and ask God to be a part of it.  Ask God to forgive your trespasses, and name them one by one. Forgive the person who trespassed against you, and pray for that person by name.  Ask God for strength to turn away from the sins that beset you.

 

It doesn’t take much, and it doesn’t take long.  But a Daily Walk with Jesus will build your faith and make it grow–just as He promises: “If you abide in my Word, you truly are my disciples.  You will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”

1. Sharing “Highs” & “Lows” of each other’s day.
2. Reading a Bible verse together.
3. Discussing how that verse relates to current life.
4. Praying together
5. Blessing One Another
