Being Intentional


One of our recurring themes here at Follower of One is the act of being "intentional". A key to being successful in any job is your intent. How do you intend to do your job today? Do you have the right mindset? Are you using your skills effectively and intentionally? The same goes for integrating your faith in the marketplace. We must be intentional about how we use our faith at work. Ryan talks with Mike about how God uses our faith to disciple us and when we learn to listen to him, our eyes open to his works more and more. Whether you are taking the Marketplace Mission Trip or in between trips, how are you using your faith directly in how you act? Are you being purposeful in listening to God? Are you being steadfast in using your faith to bloom your professional career? Let us know your experience so we all can learn from it!



Your Relationship with God


Ryan's foundation in his work, political stance, and relationships are all rooted in his connection with God. Your fellowship with God is the most important thing in your life because it opens up positive influences into everything you say and do. How often do you talk to God? Do you seek him daily? Weekly? Hourly? We have learned here at Follower of One, that our faith is designed to go beyond Sundays. Ryan believes that our faith is not just a systematic machine but a deep relationship with God himself. If you were to reflect on your connection to God, how would you describe it? What brings you to him and pulls you away? We want to be aware of our God at all times!
