Nothing But Jesus

“So the Word became human and made his home among us. He was full of unfailing love and faithfulness. And we have seen his glory, the glory of the Father’s one and only Son.”

John 1:14 NLT

A “try harder to get better” mindset has little to do with real transformation. We don’t need a new set of tips-and-techniques that promises to lead us to a deeper life with Jesus. But we can learn to nudge our life in ways that intentionally draw us more deeply into relationship with Jesus—the simple focus of our life habits shifts from working harder to be a “better Christian” or becoming a “good person,” to knowing Jesus more intimately. And by knowing him much better, we eventually know ourselves much better—that’s what this “progression” reveals: “Get to know Jesus well, because the more you know him, the more you’ll love him, and the more you love him, the more you’ll want to follow him, and the more you follow him, the more you’ll become like him, and the more you become like him, the more you become yourself.”
