Thriving not just surviving

Just as an enduring marriage must be built on rhythms and routines, so to our relationship with God survives and thrives only through disciplines such as Bible Study, fellowship, confession and prayer. Otherwise, says bible translator Eugene Peterson, “we are at the mercy of glands and weather and indigestion. And there is no mercy in any of them.” A Christian who prays only when they feel like it may survive but they will never thrive. Their vast innate potential will be stunted because grace needs a little space to take root between the cracks of a person’s life.
