How much progress are you making in your everyday walk with Christ?

Not many people are a fan of change, but when we make Jesus Christ the Lord of our life we must understand this one thing we are asking for. We are asking Jesus to make Change in us and we have to be willing to accept that change. We all like progress, we all like improvement, however we don't like change. We should strive to get closer and closer in our relationship with Jesus everyday.

I look at my two boys and see the growth over the last year alone in both of them, one now almost seven and the other almost two they are growing so much and you can see the change. This hit me when I was talking to my friend Denise yesterday, she said the boys are growing. I think about this in my walk with Christ as we all should. Are we growing in our journey with God is our relationship growing so much that it is visible to others, to where people are saying things like "something different". God's desire for us is for us to draw near to Him and to seek Him daily in our everyday lives. We hear Peter tell us this in 2 Peter 3:18 as he says "grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord.."

The more time you spend with Him the more you will know Him. God is good and has good things in store for you, He has a plan for you and it is up to us to seek Him daily in our lives, drawing near to Him and building our relationship with Him.

2 Peter 3:18 (NIV)

18 But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and forever! Amen.


Pastor J.W. Pannell III
