HOW MUCH WE NEED JESUS
Steps to Take as You Follow Christ
Ask—How greatly do I feel the need for Christ in my life?
Seek— Practice fasting before your reception of the Eucharist. Also find special times to fast before high points in the Christian year and during high points in your own life so that you may always remain focused on your need for Christ. Try doing more than is required by the Church.
Knock—Meditate on Revelation 22:17, 20
The Spirit and the Bride say, ‘Come’. Let everyone who listens answer, ‘Come’. Then let all who are thirsty come: all who want it may have the water of life, and have it free. The one who guarantees these revelations repeats his promise: I shall indeed be with you soon. Amen; come, Lord Jesus.
What did Jesus say about two or more gathering in his name?
Who are you waiting for?
Transform Your Life—Foster and keep before you the need that you have for Jesus. Make your constant prayer to Jesus one of entreating him to come, to be present, inviting him to be a part of your life.
