What’s Holding You Back?

As followers of Jesus, or even those just checking things out, it’s pretty easy to learn the ropes. Attend church, pray, read the Bible and we’re good, right? While those are all very important things, God actually calls us to go deeper. In fact, if we don’t, those “good things” will become boring and lifeless. Giving, serving, and forming relationships with other believers changes our lives and helps grow our faith on multiple levels. So why can it be so hard to take that next step?
