Fast 2020 – Quiet Time #11
The next part of the packet is designed to challenge your faith and make you consider if you are a spiritual infant or mature(ing) in Christ. Are you kingdom focused or is your focus on the world?
Christ wants us to be inwardly focused …. Inwardly focused on Him!!
For the rest of the fast commit to abstaining from media (tv, internet and the like for non work related purposes)/social media and instead invest that time with your family and the body of Christ.
Memory scripture: 1 John 2:15-17
Quiet Time #11
Jesus did not shy away from communicating the cost of discipleship. In the same way he expects us to consider what it takes to put him first. In our hearts and our lives, He expects us to put him first. How is your relationship with God? Do you desire to pray to Him? Do you desire to seek Him out? Do you desire to be in his Word? Do you seek to put his word into practice in your life? During your time with God today consider if you desire for Jesus to be Lord of every aspect of your life.
Our theme scripture is 1 John 2:15-17:
Do not love the world or anything in the world. If anyone loves the world, love for the Father is not in them. For everything in the world—the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life—comes not from the Father but from the world. The world and its desires pass away, but whoever does the will of God lives forever.
Starts January 1st at 12am
Ends January 19th together after our worship service
Pray for leadership and boldness for the Columbus Church to spread the gospel. Pray for maturity and growth in the church.
Pray weekly with someone in the church. Pray for everyone in your ministry and at least one day a week pray for everyone in the church. Also pray for people in your life that you would like to see become Christians. In fact it would be great to create a list so you have a reminder of who your praying for.
Write out a spiritual hit list Decide what you will be fasting from before the fast begins. Think through and pray about it before you decide share it with your family group. We are asking for you to keep a journal each day of the fast.
