Following Jesus is taking a step toward Him every day.
Hebrews 11:8 says, “By faith Abraham, when called to go to a place he would later receive as his inheritance, obeyed and went, even though he did not know where he was going.”
Walking with Jesus means taking steps, whether small or large, towards Him – even when we don’t have a clear idea where those steps will take us. Throughout the Bible, our relationship with God is likened to a walk. As we move in the direction of our heart, God desires that we get closer to Him and to others.
That’s why Jesus invites us to walk with Him daily, taking one step at a time towards becoming more like Him. So let’s take those steps, draw ever closer to Him, and enjoy the incredible journey that lies ahead.
What do those steps look like?
While no two discipleship journeys are identical – everyone starts and progresses at their own pace – we believe certain elements are crucial to our growth in Christ. To move closer to Jesus, we must prioritize learning, engage in a covenant community, and immerse ourselves in spiritual disciplines.
Think of these elements as the three corners of a triangle with the Holy Spirit at the center. When these three elements are present, we create an ideal environment for Spirit-driven transformation to occur. So let’s commit to learning, community, and spiritual disciplines, all with the goal of getting closer to the One who loves us and empowers us daily.
Our lives are a constant learning experience. Everything we read, watch, or listen to influences who we are becoming. Therefore, it’s crucial to seek out opportunities to learn scripture from individuals who are gifted and well-versed in teaching.
At Deliverance Tabernacle, we provide such opportunities through our Life Groups, Bible Studies, and weekend services. We believe that being part of these spaces can enrich your learning experience and empower you to grow in faith. So come, join us, and let’s journey together as we unfold the holy scripture.
It is inherent in human nature to seek and foster relationships. A thriving spiritual life is one where we come together with others to learn, teach, encourage, and challenge one another. Being part of a community helps us identify our areas of improvement which often may go unnoticed otherwise.
At Deliverance Tabernacle, we facilitate such a community through various events and services. Whether it’s a Life Group, Mens Event, Ladies Night, or our Young Adult services, we provide a safe space to be vulnerable and share your faults, queries, or doubts without fear of judgment. Additionally, we have DTYTH services catering specifically to kids and students which foster a healthy sense of community and enable wholesome growth.
So come, be a part of our gathering of believers and let’s grow together in faith, hope, and love.
Spiritual disciplines serve as training exercises for our faith, and practicing them can lead to life transformation. By engaging in these practices, we create an environment that cultivates a deeper relationship with Christ.
At Deliverance Tabernacle, we place great emphasis on three key elements, namely learning, being in a covenant community, and engaging in spiritual disciplines. This philosophy permeates every ministry and gathering we host, and we urge every believer to make these practices an integral part of their spiritual lives.
Adopting spiritual disciplines such as fasting and prayer, observing the Advent season, and participating in weekend services that focus on worship, Scripture reading, communion, and baptism can lead to significant personal and spiritual growth. Our desire is that you would join us in this journey of faith and experience the transformative power of God in your life.
