It’s not often clear what to do

Jesus tells us we will find rest for our souls if we come to him…if we take on his yoke…if we learn from him. As Christians, we know this is true, but the “learning from him” part can be frustrating.

True learning requires more than hearing, reading and discussing; it requires practice. And practice takes knowing what to do and where to start—two things that are often not clear to us.

 

"But this was the first time that we felt like a study drew us closer to the Lord. That the activities were not filling in a blank but they were taking you straight to the Lord and you were wrestling through a problem or practice with him."
- Michelle S.

How do I put Jesus’ teachings into practice?

Knowing how to practice Jesus’ teachings isn’t always apparent to us. Essential Practices of the Faith provides a set of easy-to-use practice tools and a simple method for practicing.

What essential practices will I learn? 

Essential Practices of the Faith includes many of the spiritual practices talked about by Jesus, modeled by Jesus, and used by great Christians of the past. Each practice positions us to experience God’s supernatural power and grace.

Volume 1 includes the following six practices:

Praise

…when things are going wrong

Forgiveness

…when someone has hurt or offended you

Relinquishment

…when you’re worried or afraid

Lament

…when the pain of a loss won’t go away

Listening Prayer

…when you need help with a decision

Self-Examination

…when life seems difficult

"What’s so unique about Essential Practices is that you are out there doing. It’s not just in the head. You’re actually out there experiencing it. That just means everything. It’s different than what we’ve done before. It really internalizes the faith. " - Patrick R.
