Life is a journey for everyone. For all who have trusted God’s Son for life eternal and life in all its fullness, we not only follow Christ but also the destination of our journey takes us into more of Christ.
As one Christian described the process for himself: “I want to know Christ…Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.” (Philippians 3:10-14)
That’s a good picture of a “Christ Awakening Journey”—the pursuit of more of Christ because the Holy Spirit awakens us to fresh dimensions of the supreme Jesus we had not seen before. As the Bible says to all believers: “Wake up sleeper, rise from the dead, and Christ will shine on you.” (Ephesians 5:14)
Below are a number of free opportunities for you to explore and experience more of what this Christ Awakening journey can mean for you.
If you’ve never heard of a Christ Awakening, you can learn more here.
