Making Room for God and His Church Day 6: Weekly Thoughts
For even the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many. (Mark 10:45, ESV)
This week’s study has hopefully challenged us as believers. It has brought to light many needs we experience as we seek to live in obedience to Christ and His Word. Here are a few questions to ponder as we reflect on our Christian walk.
- Are you honoring God in His command, “Do this in remembrance of me”? This was regarding our weekly remembrance in taking communion and spending time in worship with our family of faith.
- Are you connected and plugged into your local church? Are you using your gifts to benefit the needs of your Church family?
- If you are in a season of coasting, how might you get out of your spiritual rut? Staying in “coast mode” is not going to help you fulfill the purposes God has for your life.
- Does God hold the primary place in your priorities? Be honest—it’s so easy to put people (spouse, kids, friends) and position (work, finances, etc.) in this place that should belong only to Him.
- What are you contributing to your local church, and how would they be affected by your absence? What changes can you make to be more intentional in your service there?
- What reignites your faith, and do you need a spiritual awakening?
- How do you spend your typical Sunday?
My prayer as we close this part of our study is that we would take inventory of how available we are for Christ and His Church. Answering these questions with honesty will hopefully challenge each of us to make spiritual changes that will bring honor and glory to our Savior.
