Walk in the spirit Session TWO
‘Come Follow Me’ – Knowing Jesus as Lord
Jesus personally calls each one of us to get to know him and become his friend and follower. But how well do we know him? Knowing Jesus as Lord opens the door to an authentic relationship with Jesus. Surrender of our lives to Jesus is a key spiritual step that can sometimes be completely overlooked. Deliberate reflection on this step can help unlock a more intimate experience of God. It can sound daunting, perhaps due to our own poor experiences of human authority but it is an important step that we can make towards fullness of life and growth in our freedom in God.
