In the story of the three little pigs, only one pig's house is able to stand up to the attack of the wolf. The third pig built his house out of rock. When the wolf came and threatened the pig he was not intimidated, scared, or moved. The wolf failed. The pig won because he not only used the right material but he used it in the right way.
Many of us who follow Jesus suffer unnecessarily and chase the winds of this world unnecessarily because, while we may have the right material we use it in the wrong way. Said another way, while we know the truth, we do not have a method of walking the truth that produces the depth and clarity God wants us to have. Having a method of walking with Jesus is like having a structural plan for building a house.
The Apostle Paul writes in Philippians 3:17, "Brethren, join in following my example, and observe those who walk according to the same pattern you have in us." Paul had a method he used to walk in relationship with the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. He trained others to walk in the same method he used. And he encouraged others to observe those he had trained and walk as they walk.
Having a method of walking with God brings clarity and confidence. Too many of us do not have a robust way of walking with Jesus. We do "a little of this" and "a little of that" unsure if it is right or if it is what we are "supposed" to be doing. Walking with the Lord according to a specific method empowers us to enjoy deeper intimacy, to stand stronger in the fight, and to go train others to walk in the same way.
An effective method of walking with the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit will meet five criteria. The method will be biblical, relational, holistic, transformational, and easily reproducible. In Trexo we have developed the Way of Rest to be a powerful, dynamic method of walking with Christ that meets these criteria. The Way of Rest produces maturity in such a way that can be easily reproduced. Walking in this way provides the depth and clarity so many followers of Jesus know they are missing but do not know how to find it. You can buy the book, The Way of Rest, here, or you can schedule a consultation with Trexo. We are blessed to serve you in anyway we can.
By the way, when the wolf came to the third pig's house who else was there? The other two pigs! The method the third pig used afforded shelter and protection to the other two. May our Father lead you to walk with Him in a way that others will come to you!
