Giving Up &
In this holy season we choose to intentionally consider the rhythms of our lives and give up distraction, isolation, and undue busyness. We de-clutter and refocus in order to . . .
Living in Generosity
Relationships: reach out to an alienated member of your family or in your neighborhood
Time: Joining a cell / devoting weekly time to communal discipleship
Possessions: inviting someone to eat at your table
Money: support local commerce and supporting godly charities
Attitude: “honor one another above yourself” “do not think of yourself more highly than you ought to think
Growing in Humility
“honor one another above yourself” - Romans 12:10
“do not think of yourself more highly than you ought to think” - Romans 12:3
The practice of confession
Giving others the benefit of the doubt
Quick to listen, slow to speak, and slow to become angry
The Pursuit of Unity
Choose not to slander a fellow family member in the faith
Become a Member of the church
Intentionally gather with believers in vulnerability - in small numbers.
Identify members of the church whose names you don’t yet know, and commit to learn them
Study the Gospel Centered Life.
