“All the believers devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching, and to fellowship, and to sharing in meals (including the Lord’s Supper), and to prayer.” Acts 2:42
My understanding of intentional faith development has grown through the active participation in three areas: a small group community, systematically reading the Bible and a commitment to spiritual growth. In each of these three areas I have found in my own life, as well as that of others, that to simply put myself within the process of the activity of doing these things faithfully, has led to a continued process of faith development in my life. When we are engaging God and engaging other Christians in intentional interaction we cannot help growing from the process.
As you spend some time today in this study I encourage you to both reflect back on how your growth has been shaped by these and other activities and if needed find a way to begin one or more of these practices within your own life.
For those of you who are really interested here is take 1! Enjoy!
