Fruitful Living – Final Day

five-practicesReading:
‘I am the way, and the truth, and the life’ (John 14 v. 6)

Reflection:
‘When Jesus said this (above), He was not speaking arrogantly, egotistically, or narrow-mindedly. He was expressing a genuine desire to turn us, to redirect us away from things that do not safisty and toward the things that cause us to come alive.
To find and follow Christ, and to serve Him – that is fruitful living. These practices invite us along a pathway prepared by hundreds of generations that embeds us in community, connects us with God, and provides avenues for us to make a difference…They show us a way.’

Prayer:
Lord Jesus,
show us how following You
takes us along this pathway,
step by step
growing into the life that really is life.
Heavenly Father,
reveal this way to us,
invite us to walk along it,
and let us discover that You accompany us on it.
Holy Spirit,
change us,
and through us
change the world.
AMEN.

Challenge:
Examine where you are today, and challenge yourself as to how you will move along the pathway towards ‘the way, the truth, the life’, through ‘radical hospitality, passionate worship, intentional faith development, risk-taking mission and service and extravagant generosity’.
