Good Habits

Connecting with God helps us know Him better.


“Yes, I am the vine; you are the branches. Those who remain in me, and I in them, will produce much fruit. For apart from me you can do nothing” (John 15:5 NLT).

Habits are routine behaviors we tend to do a lot.

What kind of habits do you have in life?

Are they good strong habits or they weak worthless habits?

If we want to get to know God better and keep growing our faith, we have to make a habit of doing things each day that help us stay connected to Him. Connecting with God looks a lot like how you would connect with your best friend.  You get to know each other, stay connected, communicate a lot, and spend time together.

The more you do it, the better your relationship.

I know I have many habits in life I should reconsider.  One habit is when I want to just escape the day, I do a word search on my phone.  I can zone out for hours even though I have to think.  It’s not a bad habit, but when it takes away from reading the Word of God, praying or spending time with God, it’s now become an idol.  Eventually I have to plug my phone in because I used up all my battery!  If I don’t charge it my phone will shut off.  It can be the same with connecting to God, you need to plug in so your life doesn’t shut off from heavenly power!

Are your habits becoming an idol to you or is Jesus number one?

Do you want to help develop habits to make your relationship with God an everyday kind of faith?

Regardless of where we’re at with our faith, we all might wonder what it means to connect with God, why we should want to do it, and what it will do for us right now.

In Jesus’ last meal with His disciples, He told them something that would help them in the days after He was crucified.

 (John 15:5) The vine is the source of life for the branches. If the branches want to survive and thrive, they have to stay connected to the vine.

In the same way, if we want to keep going and growing in our faith, we have to stay connected to Jesus. If we stay connected to God, our lives will show it, and our faith will flourish.
