Here is an exercise that you might consider as a way to get to know Christ better. It is a simple practice, really. I have done this
before and seen much of God’s character through the experience.
But to worship Him best we have to know Him well. A good place to begin is by taking a “Thirty-Day Worship Journey,” carving out a few quiet minutes every day for a month to consider one of God’s attributes. It could be His faithfulness, patience, wisdom, or constant presence. Or that He’s a perfect Father. Or a trustworthy, fair, and encouraging Savior. But whatever aspect of His character you choose, you’re going to carry that characteristic of God with you all day long.
Say you start with God’s faithfulness, choosing to praise Him because in every situation He remains the same. For the whole day, Faithful will be foremost in your thoughts! You’re going to chew it up, digest it, meditate on it, talk to God about it, journal some thoughts about it, think about it a little more, ponder it, respond to it, imitate it, be influenced by it, pray about it, appreciate it, and go to bed thanking God for it. You might even dream about it. And you know what? After thirty days you’ll be amazed at how much better you know Him. He won’t just be this huge, generic “God” to you. He’ll be someone you’re really getting to know as you begin to discover the fullness of who He is.
(Louie Giglio, The Air I Breathe)
If you are interested in ideas of the attributes of Jesus, look at 1 Corinthians 13:4-7 (I wrote about it here) and Galatians 5:22-23.
This is also great to do with another believer. You don’t even have to pick the same attribute each day; just share your experience with each other.
All of the attributes of Jesus dwell in us through His Spirit. As you learn of Him, consider where He may be asking you to express His life in your situations.
