Following Jesus in Real Life

Following Jesus in Real Life

Following Jesus is my heart’s desire. Now that I’ve been waiting for God’s guidance for quite some time, I’ve caught myself wondering what I’ve been doing wrong.

This is how the birth of Jesus Christ took place. When Mary his mother was engaged to Joseph, before they…
