A Changed Life - Friday, June 28th 2013

2 Corinthians 10:4

"We use God's mighty weapons, not worldly weapons, to knock down the strongholds of human reasoning and to destroy false arguments."
NLT

God wants to change the way we live and the way we think. He does this by using the following seven areas. God wants us to grow as people and as followers of Jesus. In studying and teaching the Bible, I have seen that certain areas are absolutely mission critical. Meaning, if we fail in one or more of these areas, we will not be everything we have been called to be. There may be more than seven but there are at least these seven...

7 Spiritual Passions:
Reading/studying the Bible
Praying
Evangelism/discipleship
Worship
Giving/tithes and offerings
Serving
Fellowship/family

Take a long look at this list. How are you doing in each one of these areas? Prayerfully rank yourself with a 1-10 in each of these seven areas. If you feel really bold, ask a loved one or friend to help you score yourself. Chances are, you are strong in some areas and weak in others areas. Spend time, pray and explore scriptures in the areas you are weak. God wants you to grow where you are weak. Be encouraged though because where we are weak, He is strong (2 Corinthians 13:9).

Dear God,
Thank You for salvation and Your Word. Lord, help me to recognize the areas where I am weak and make changes in my life that glorify You. In Jesus' name, Amen.
