Pastor Jane discussed John 6:24-35 and how Jesus is the bread of life. But do we live and act like Jesus is our bread of life? What can we do to have a better/closer relationship with Jesus?
What are you putting aside this month to retreat with Jesus?
Retreat with Jesus!
May this be a time of greater depth of faith, expanse of peace, and passion for the journey! Try this exercise this week:
Imagine you see Jesus sitting close to you. In doing this, you are putting your imagination at the service of your faith: Jesus obviously isn't here in the way you imagine him to be but he is here all right, and your imagination helps to make this real for you.
Now speak to Jesus...If no one is around, speak out in a soft voice...
Imagine what Jesus says in reply...
