Practice makes perfect! This basic principle also applies to our relationship with Jesus Christ. Two main exercises help in the process:

Regular prayer

In your life with Jesus, prayer is as natural and important as breathing is for the body. Prayer is just speaking intentionally and honestly with God. We can share everything with Jesus: our worries, troubles challenges as well as our joys and triumphs. As in any friendship, Jesus wants us to share everything with Him and learn to trust Him in the process. As we share our lives with Him in prayer, our faith grows and we gain new perspective and clarity in our lives.

Reading the bible

The Bible tells God’s story with mankind. It is also God’s handbook or instruction manual for living a life that crosses the finish line with flying colors. Reading the Bible and earning to apply its principles in your own life strengthens and encourages us.
