“God First” Formula

When we designed the Christian Maturity Assessment, we established ten core ingredients necessary to build a healthy Christian lifestyle and foundation to grow with Jesus.  Intentional focus putting God first throughout the week by combining the ten core ingredients keeps us centered and connected to Jesus on a continuous basis.  Each one of us is accountable for developing our relationship with Jesus and growing in our faith, and no one can do that for us.  Sometimes the depth of knowledge and understanding that we need can be daunting which is why 24/7 Purpose established the courses, assessments and aggregated resources that we all need to design an intentional action plan.  Listed below are the ten core ingredients to add to your daily, weekly and monthly spiritual growth ambitions.  The formula is not intended to be performance based but to enable us to be so connected and aligned that God leads us through our intentional focus on knowing, loving and serving Him first.  Take the 7-day challenge by applying the ingredients and watch your relationships improve along with every area of life.  If you haven’t already done so, download our FREE Spiritual Growth Plan Toolkit to help you jump start this process.
