Every journey requires taking a first step. You can't think your way anywhere. You can't dream your way anywhere. If you're ever going to make it from point A to point B, you're going to have to move--and that requires putting one foot in front of the other and taking the necessary steps to guide you in the direction you want to go.
The same is true of your spiritual journey. To be a Christian means to follow Jesus--and in order to follow Jesus there are some fundamental steps you have to take in order to go where He leads.
Here in the first month of a new year we go back to the basics and consider the first steps that Christians for thousands of years have been called to take and that we're still being called to take today. Join us as we explore the essential paths of Christian faith--one step at a time. #FirstStepsMCC
WEEK 1: "IT STARTS WITH JESUS"
Aaron McClary - January 14, 2018
The very first step we have to take is in the direction of Jesus. The Christian faith starts with Jesus, ends with Jesus, and is full of Jesus everywhere in between. What we're saying when we call ourselves Christians should not be that we believe in a religion but that we follow a person.
"The Lord directs the steps of the godly. He delights in every detail of their lives. Though they stumble, they will never fall, for the Lord holds them by the hand." Psalm 37:23-24 (NLT)
