Sacred Pathways: Nine Ways to Connect with God

There’s more than one pathway to intimacy with God.

Thomas reveals nine distinct spiritual temperaments to help you improve your spiritual life and deepen your personal walk with God and understand and appreciate the potentially different tendencies of those you love.

As believers in Christ, many of us today fall into the trap of thinking we have to approach God in a certain way. This one-size-fits-all mentality typically leaves them feeling frustrated and distant from God. But the truth is that not every person will engage with God in the same way. For this reason, it is important to discover the particular pathway that will best help them to experience God’s presence.

If your spiritual walk is not what you'd like it to be, you can change that, starting here. Sacred Pathways will show you:

  • How you best relate to God and develop new ways of drawing near to him
  • Key biblical figures who share your spiritual temperament
  • How to evaluate your time with God
  • How to understand others who have different spiritual temperaments

When to Walk Away Bible Study Guide: Finding Freedom from Toxic People

Jesus walked away from toxic people, and you should too.

In this six-session video Bible study, Gary Thomas draws on Jesus’ example to show how the best course of action for us to take with some relationships is to walk away . . . or let the other person walk away.

Most of us have run across toxic individuals who drain us of our joy and peace–people who resent the grace we share and will never change. However, as Gary will show in this study, we don’t have to pour our time and energy into these people. Instead, we can follow Jesus’ example to walk away from toxic people and walk toward healthy relationships that will encourage us, strengthen us, and build us up. And as we do, it frees us to focus completely on the purpose that God has established for our lives.
