Your Faith Journey 32

Your Faith Journey  

Pastor Larry’s Final Sunday
Worship God – In his letter known as 1 Corinthians, the apostle Paul was trying to help Christians to avoid chaotic or disorderly gatherings, as well as instructing them to be sensitive to unbelievers. Paul encourage the Corinthians that when “unbelievers…come into your meeting, they will be convicted of sin…their secret thoughts will be exposed, and they will fall to their knees and worship God, declaring, ‘God is truly here among you.’” (1 Cor. 14:24-25 NLT). Let us focus upon worshiping God during our time together, as we enjoy the supernatural communion and fellowship of being with brothers and sisters in Christ as we’re aware and sensitive to unbelievers. Lord, through the power and presence of the Holy Spirit transform lives.
Develop as a Disciple – What is the Holy Habit (spiritual discipline) that you need to begin or re-start this summer? Fasting (Matthew 6:16-18)? Praying (Matthew 7:7-11)? Studying what Jesus said and did, and living according to what you learn (Matthew 7:24-27)? Jesus instructed the apostle John to, “write in a book everything you see” (Revelation 1:11). Perhaps you should start writing in a journal the ways you experience God working in your life. Mark 4:38 reveals that Jesus was sleeping on a boat while he and the disciples sailed through a storm. Do you need some rest? Maybe you need to schedule a day of rest and recreation each week this summer.
