Shift the Dependency
We all need something outside of ourselves—we just get confused about what it is that can satisfy our souls. How long does the new car smell last or the thrill of latest game? Honestly, how long does sex satisfy you? The things of the world breed dependency upon themselves because their longevity is fleeting—you must re-indulge over and over to maintain the fix that is shallow at best. Really, how far do these things go to see you through the death of a loved one, or loss of your career or health?
Jesus is the only One who can truly satisfy the very depths of your soul and strengthen you through the hellish times this world has to offer. In the "Nurturing your Spirituality" portion of the website you will find some helpful tips for turning dependency on worldly things to focus on the only One who can truly satisfy all your longings and needs. Use the information available here to glean tools that can help you facilitate depth and consistency in your relationship with Jesus. Then check out the “Devotions to Share” page to inspire your own daily growth and for use in leading others into a deeper relationship with Jesus, as well.
Check out Pastor Scott Ward's new book, Authentic: Where true, life-changing Christianity begins. This book lays out simple ways we can draw nearer to Jesus, and strengthen our relationship wih Him.
