165 Almost Daily Devotional – Life Without Following The Rules

by Cliff Ravenscraft on October 26, 2011

in Almost Daily Devotional, Encouraging Others Through Christ


It’s been just over a month since our family made the decision to “stop going to church.” I’m sure that many people wondered just how far off the path I might get when it comes to my priorities and my spiritual life. Heck, I’ll be honest and tell you that I had wondered the same thing!

In this episode, I admit that I seem to simply share a random stream of consciousness as I share just the slightest overview of how wonderful this past month or so has been.

What’s funny, is that I’m not all the concerned about impressing ANYONE with how the past month has been since I decided to “Live Life Without Following The Rules!”

With that said, I believe God does want me to share just a bit of the journey I’ve been on and how LIVING LOVED BY HIM has been changing me from the inside out and helping me to have a great capacity to love those who surround me.

I do hope that this episode will be a blessing to you. Below I will place a link to the things mentioned in this episode.

Nathan, Thank you so much for such powerful and encouraging feedback. WOW! I praise God for you taking the time to share what you have seen at work within me.

I have not heard of Frank Viloa's writings. I'll keep an ear and eye out for that should the Spirit lead me to look into it further. I've been enjoying the podcast at http://thegodjourney.com/ and while their site doesn't look amazing, I've found so much value in the blog and podcast that they have at http://www.lifestream.org.

One thing is for sure, I've been experiencing TRUE JOY AND PEACE in my relationship with Jesus and I'm continually amazing at how I am able to interact with others who are on this journey on a DAILY basis. I love BEING the Church!

I look forward to continuing to share all the things that I'm learning as I move forward. Thanks for sharing what this has meant for you, and once again for sharing what you have seen at work within me.
