Yesterday we looked in Acts chapter six and the example of Stephen. He found the reassurance to face life and death without fear in scripture. - found the resources to forgive in scripture. - knew Jesus was the promised Messiah because of the witness of scripture. - was prepared for a good death, in part, because he lived and breathed scripture. How can we be prepared?
Here are three ideas to grow as a Christian:
Attend everything, make the time, un-busy yourself for what truly is important – it’s all about priorities. What is the most important thing to you?
Begin to experience real and new growth in Christ –choose wisely the things that bring you closer to Christ. WWJD?
Jump in and don’t wait to be asked! See where God is working and offer to help – ask to be trained/mentored/taught to be able to grow!
Don’t pretend! - God knows your heart and sees your actions.
