Some Thoughts On Spirituality As the New New Year Starts

Kennon's pictureWell when this time comes around every year I began to have thoughts of the direction that I want to go in what I wanted to accomplish and what I want to do with the rest of my life. A lot of these thoughts entail religious practices and principles. One of my New Year’s resolutions this year was to get closer to Jesus in a real way and not talking about getting more religious of being bigger in some kind of religious institution but the actual mechanism of getting closer to Jesus.  I think I must pay more attention to Jesus’ life and what he thought as he lived here on this earth and his actions here on earth and even now when he’s gone on to be our advocate in heaven. I want to think about this and is very difficult due to our way of thinking our mindset here. Around here we (and when I say we I certainly include myself) think about being more religious as going through the religious rituals and doing all the things that we should do to be a good member of the church equates to being close to Jesus. All these things are not bad within themselves but they surely do not make us worthy in God’s eyes. I guess that I need to step back and take a long look at my relationship with Jesus the Savior and see what I need to do to approach closer to him. I can study what he did when he was on earth and try to emulate him. I could be a disciple and after all the followers of Jesus were called desciples even before they were called Christians. And another think that comes to mind is to have a very fervent prayer life and talk to the Lord often and that way he will hear and tell me what I should do in my life of being a disciple.
