As 2021 comes to a close the guys get down to talking about developing a “Rule of Life” as they look to improve their personal lives spiritually, relationally, recreationally and professionally. As you are considering how the coming year will be different for you, we encourage you to grab a notebook or notepad and get down to the serious business of considering how 2022 will be different for you by developing your own rule of life.
A rule of life is a schedule and set of practices and relational rhythms that help us create space in our busy world for us to be with Jesus, become like Jesus, and do what Jesus did—to live “to the full” ( John 10v10) in his kingdom, and in alignment with our deepest passions and priorities. –from Practicing the Way, John Mark Comer
Here are some of the highlights:
- A rule is a set of ordered practices – not a bunch of restrictions
- If you are not enjoying life, not accomplishing what you believe would honor God and bless others-you are a good candidate for developing a rule of life
- The elements of a rule of life can be simple-we recommend you consider City Church’s approach.
- S – Sabbath
- A – Abiding in Christ
- L – Loving Community
- T – Training
