Our first steps into faith give us practice on our journey of deeper relationship with Jesus. As children we learn simple prayers and to pause to be with Jesus. Later, we live into adult ways of service and prayer. Even later, we sit in silence with Jesus because we know Him and just cherish being with Him. Wherever we are at, we must let ourselves be guided by His words in Scripture and His loving embrace in silence. First steps in faith must always be followed by next steps toward greater union with Jesus Christ.
