Day 1

What does a Relationship with Jesus look like?

Welcome to Next Step, a seven day journey of beginning your relationship with Jesus. We are so thankful we get to journey with you on the new adventure you’ve said “yes” to! We can’t wait to see you grow, walk alongside you, and get to do life together.

The first question you may be asking is, “what does a relationship with Jesus ACTUALLY look like?” We want to focus our first day of devotions together to answer that question.

For each individual, the day-to-day with Jesus may look different. After all, God talks to us in so many different ways and each relationship is so significant and genuine. One thing that’s for sure, is that God wants to be part of our daily lives, he wants to be involved and welcomed into your every day. It’s important that we make time for God to build a relationship with us. Making time for God can be through things like a daily devotional, studying the bible, worshipping, spending time praying, or just having some quiet time and reflecting on God and his goodness. Beginning each day or ending each night by spending time with God is essential to growing a relationship. He wants to spend time with you.

Here’s a challenge to try today -spend 10 minutes with God, take just 10 minutes in the day to read a devotion, the Bible, and pray. Here’s an outline for an idea on how you can spend that time: Open up in a prayer thanking God for his love and grace, then spend some time praying for those you know who don’t have a relationship with God. Then read the Bible. For today, read John 3:16-17

John 3:16-17 says, “For this is how God loved the world: He gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life. God sent his Son into the world not to judge the world, but to save the world through him.

Now that you’ve read through these verses, take some time to think and reflect on what you just read.

Making this habit of daily life with God will set you on a great course for growing a relationship and foundation for the rest of your life.
