Hiking w/ Jesus

Spiritual Formation = Hiking behind (following) Jesus  

What & who do you hike with? 

Map (Word of God) 
Trail Guide (Spirit of God) 
Fellow hikers (People of God) 
Result of Hike (become like the Son of God)  

I like the hiking mentality because it reminds me that there are many people ahead of me on the trail. But, there are also many people behind me. And my job (1 Cor 11:1) is to tell them to "Follow me as I follow Christ."
