I used to write a personal development site. I encouraged my readers to create good habits to improve their life. I still think habits are important, but there is a deeper need.
As I interacted with readers, I began to realize that changing behavior isn’t enough.
People need their hope restored. They need to know that someone can help them overcome their feelings of fear, despair and helplessness.
Jesus Is the Answer
From my own experience, I know there is only one person that can help people at this deeper level.
Jesus answered, “Everyone who drinks this water will be thirsty again, but whoever drinks the water I give them will never thirst. Indeed, the water I give them will become in them a spring of water welling up to eternal life.” John 4:13-14 (NIV)
I want to help people find and drink this amazing water that Jesus offers. By copying Jesus – his example – we can live a full and satisfying life. One that is free of all the burdens this crazy world lays upon us.
What I Want to Accomplish on CopyJesus
My goals on CopyJesus.com are to:
- Shine a light into the darkness to help people find and copy the life that Jesus modeled for us. (See Matt 5:14-16)
- Offer to everyone the greatest path to hope, forgiveness and a truly abundant life that the world has ever seen. (See John 10:10-11)
- Fulfill the Great Commission by helping followers to spread the Good News about Jesus to all the world. (See Matt 28:16-20)
How I Will Meet These Goals
I will accomplish this by writing about the things God is doing in my own life. I will also share what I read, hear and experience that enable me to more fully copy Jesus myself.
Beyond that, it is up to you and God. But, God is good and will answer those who call on Him.
For, “Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.” How, then, can they call on the one they have not believed in? And how can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone preaching to them? Romans 10:13-14 (NIV)
Jesus Trumps Personal Development
Bottom line, I created this site as a platform to inform as many people as possible about the hope that is available through Jesus. He is the One that can fill the deeper needs we all have.
Supporting you – the reader – in your own personal quest as a Christ Follower is my mission. It goes well beyond teaching people about good habits. Jesus can change you from the inside out. He is the hope of the world. He trumps personal development and that’s why I created this site.
