Becoming a Modern Day Disciple
Jeff Cavins will explain God’s desire to walk with us as he introduces the first-century relationship between a rabbi and his disciple as the metaphor for God’s relationship with us. Jeff will describe the life of a disciple two thousand years ago and then paint a picture of how that can become a reality for people today. This is a very practical talk about walking with God in the modern world.. You will learn how to talk to Jesus on a daily basis by utilizing the ancient practice of lectio divina (divine reading). This practice of talking to God in Scripture and hearing his daily direction will transform your walk with Christ and enable you to meet problems with real direction and comfort. In addition, Jeff will share some of his personal practices that lead to a more fruitful relationship with Jesus.
