I worship God for who he is, and all he has done for me.
Come, let us bow down in worship,
let us kneel before the LORD our Maker;
for he is our God
and we are the people of his pasture,
the flock under his care.
I strive to be in constant conversation with God – to listen, share my thoughts, and align my will with God’s will.
Mathew 6:9-13: This, then, is how you should pray: ‘Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name, your kingdom come, your will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us today our daily bread. Forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one.’
I study the scriptures to learn who God is and who I am; to understand His principles and apply His words in my daily life.
Psalm 119: 10,11
I seek you with all my heart;
do not let me stray from your commands.
I have hidden your word in my heart
that I might not sin against you.
I give away my time, gifts, and resources to fulfill God’s purposes.
Romans 12:1: Therefore, I urge you, brothers, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God–this is your spiritual act of worship.
I share with others the good news of Gods gift of salvation through Jesus Christ – through my actions, lifestyle and words.
Mathew 28:19-20: Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.
I meet together with other Christians so we can encourage each other in faith, and join our gifts to accomplish God’s purposes in our lives, our community and our world.
1 Corinthians 12:13-14: The body is a unit, though it is made up of many parts; and though all its parts are many, they form one body. So it is with Christ. For we were all baptized by one Spirit into one body–whether Jews or Greeks, slave or free–and we were all given the one Spirit to drink. Now the body is not made up of one part but of many.
I submit my life completely to God’s will, and out of love for God and others I relinquish my need to be right and in control.
James 4:7, 10: Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will lift you up.
My life is not about me, so I focus my energy on God and his priorities for my life.
Matthew 6:33: But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.
I know my spiritual gifts, and I use them to accomplish God’s purposes.
Romans 12:4, 5: Just as each of us has one body with many members, and these members do not all have the same function, so in Christ we who are many form one body, and each member belongs to all the others. We have different gifts, according to the grace given us.
