Like all healthy and satisfying relationships, our relationship with God needs time and energy. But giving time and energy to our relationship with God actually increases free time and energy because it helps us get a better perspective on life and order our priorities better, it reduces the time we spend on image management, and it removes fear and anxiety.

In this article, on Crossway’s blog, I highlight some things that have helped me to keep my personal relationship with God personal and avoid falling into the trap of relating to him only through my ministry to others. Some of the subjects covered are:

  1. Guarded Time
  2. Undistracted Mind
  3. Vocal Prayers
  4. Varied Devotions
  5. Good Sleep
  6. Christ-Centered Sermons
  7. Christ-Centered Books
