Jesus More Closely

A place for men who want to follow Jesus more closely, and love him more deeply.

So I’m a guy who, for a long time, has struggled to love Jesus well, and to follow him well. This place is for men like me. Men who struggle to love Jesus well, and to follow him well, and who want to love him more deeply and follow him more closely.

I hope you’ll help each other and help me to follow Jesus more closely by sharing anything you’ve found helpful in the comments section. I’ll also share what I’ve found to be helpful. And I’ll share stories of men who love Jesus well.

“If you love me, you will keep my commandments.”

–Jesus Christ, John 14:15


1 Jesus As My Hero

One of the best things I ever did was to make Jesus my ultimate hero and to begin to intentionally study him and try to imitate him as best I can. I would say that this is the best possible starting point for anyone who wants to love Jesus more deeply and follow him more closely.

    Overcoming myown self. My emotions, my ways, my thoughts; everything me. The hardest thing to do but when you desire it with the whole of your heart and mind and soul ( this doesn’t come by our own effort, it is the Lord wanting this for us and so we can have it for such is His grace upon us ).And the Lord will manifest himself within us. It is simply I choose Christ instead of me.

    I found there is no better freedom than this.
