The Call To
As a Pastor (but actually regardless of your “position” in your church), I have this recurring fear… not fear in the sense of emotional fear, but a fear of God… a reverence… a knowing in my gut that we must do what is right with God… a nightmare if you will… that week after week, year after year, decade after decade, we show up for Sunday service...
Read and meditate upon the scriptures. Think about what information is included, what it means, and how you can apply it to your life. Be sure to journal your thoughts!
Listen to Steve Hannett, President & Founder of Gospel Mission Network, and Senior Pastor of Abundant Grace for Day 5 teaching devotional.
"I was backsliding, I was sinning... it just felt good being in the world. I was in a toxic relationship... I got into drinking, and was drinking to get numb...
My discovery back to God was a gradual process. I was looking for a Church..." —
Think and journal your answers to the following questions to go deeper into today's scripture and meditation.
What things have you been worrying about most recently?
What should we do in order to overcome our worries according to Matthew Chapter 6?
Why is Matthew 6:33 so encouraging?
What will it look like when you act upon Matthew 6:33 and seek first the Kingdom of God.
Read Matthew Chapter 6 and journal on why your worries are no match for God's love.
Create a list of different ways you believe God is calling you to personally seek His Kingdom.
Put a plan together during the rest of this consecration to seek God like never before!
Share this plan with a friend for accountability!
LIVE IT OUT
The key to growing in the Lord is to not only "hear" God's Word but to apply it to our lives.
