In my time with God this morning, these 5 steps came to me. How simple would it be if we lived our lives by these steps.
STEP 1 – Die to self.
STEP 2 – Report to Jesus and receive orders.
STEP 3 – Carry out orders.
STEP 4 – Report back to Jesus.
STEP 5 – Repeat daily.
Tonight my wife and I will start what we hope to be a weekly routine and we’ll start with steps 1 and 2. I have a feeling I have some ideas of what #2 already is. Doing theses steps, of which step 1 in itself is where I usually get stuck, will require some things. One being guts. Another being trust. We will most certainly need to sharpen our listening skills to be able to discern Jesus’ voice. And we need to learn how to do this together.
I’ll post a follow up report.
