Place Your Life Before God
1 So here's what I want you to do, God helping you: Take your everyday, ordinary life--your sleeping, eating, going-to-work, and walking-around life--and place it before God as an offering. Embracing what God does for you is the best thing you can do for him.
2 Don't become so well-adjusted to your culture that you fit into it without even thinking. Instead, fix your attention on God. You'll be changed from the inside out. Readily recognize what he wants from you, and quickly respond to it. Unlike the culture around you, always dragging you down to its level of immaturity, God brings the best out of you, develops well-formed maturity in you.
BULLSEYE – TAKING AIM WITH JESUS
September 14, 2014
What does it mean for you to say that you are “walking or growing in the way of Jesus”? Name some of the ways that your relationship with Jesus changes other relationships, your behavior, actions etc.
- At North Bramalea, we have named 6 different “targets” as a way of aiming towards a Bullseye as we walk with Jesus. Which of the ones below do you struggle with? Which do you find most important or significant to your Christian growth?
- Spiritual Practices
- Worship Together Weekly
- Authentic Community
- Giving Generously
- Sharing Christ
2) There are of course other markers (intentional practices) that we can aim at to grow as Christ-followers – what are some that you would add?
3) Tim Keller wrote “Jesus is saying, “Look what I’ve done to come near to you. Now draw near to me. I don’t want to be a concept; I want to be a friend.” The “Bullseye Targets” are something that we can practice, but the goal is not about doing each one perfectly. These are invitations from God to enter into a deeper relationship. In light of Keller’s quote – how will these “targets” help you to do just that?
4) Which one of these markers are you choosing today to spend more time in? What next steps are you committed to taking? Write it down here.
Whatever the next step is that you are committing yourself to, take 15 minutes to pray about it and lay out a plan to achieve it. For example if you are committed to spending 15 minutes with God per day – when will you do that, what day will you start, what resources do you need. Mark one month from now in your calendar today – and get ready to reflect on what God can do in just 30 days!
