Our desire is to equip you in your discipleship to Jesus. Each week we will have a new practice to help you grow as you walk in the new life you are freely given through Jesus.
Practice for the Week of September 20
This week we kicked off our new series called Deeper Relationships. If you missed this past Sunday’s teaching, we encourage you to watch it on our Facebook page. This week we looked at Up or our relationship with God.
1 John 4:9-19
This is how God showed his love among us: He sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him. This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins.
- Do you believe God enjoys you, that he loves you?
- What are some things that keep you from believing how much God loves you?
- How might your life change if you embraced God’s love you in Jesus?
Developing Intimacy with God
Jesus prioritized time with his Father in the midst of his very busy life. In a few weeks we are going to look at, in detail, the habits we can begin to develop to grow in our intimacy with God. But tell then here are some basic things you can begin to practice this week.
Pick one or two of the following practices to practice this week.
Spend 5 minutes a day in silence and solitude with God. Turn off the off the phone, shut the door and simply be present to God.
Read you Bible every day. Download the Bible App and pick a plan. Invite a few friends to do it together. It doesn’t have to be long if this is something new for you. Just start somewhere.
Pray. As you go about your day talk to God. Invite him into the stressful meeting you have tomorrow. Ask him to give you patience with your kids before you wake them up in the morning. Thank him for the meals you get to eat. Thank him for the car you are sitting in during rush hour traffic.
